How Automated E2E Testing Enables a Consistently Great User Experience on an Ever Changing WordPress.com - Alister Scott
At WordPress.com we constantly deliver changes to our millions of customers - in the past month alone we released our React web client 563 times; over 18 releases every day. We don’t conduct any manual regression testing, and we only employ 5 software testers in a company of ~680 people with ~230 developers across. So, how do we ensure our customers get a consistently great user experience with all this rapid change?
Our automated end-to-end (e2e) tests give us confidence to release small frequent changes constantly to all our different applications and platforms knowing that our customers can continue to use our products to achieve their desires.
Alister will share how these automated tests are written and work, some of the benefits and challenges we’ve seen in implementing these tests, and what we have planned for future iterations.
