Talk Description
Today, agile teams deploy code to production hundreds of times a day. However, most CI/CD pipelines miss an important piece—Visual testing. Visual bugs are hard to detect through functional tests, and manual testing is not built for this velocity.

In this Masterclass, Mike compares visual testing to manual reviews or functional tests and why you need visual testing to catch UI bugs. He then talks about making visual reviews a part of your workflow and how visual testing works under the hood using Percy. Lastly, he discusses best practices for running your first visual test and tips to make visual testing do more for your team.
What you’ll learn

By the end of this masterclass, you'll be able to:

  • Describe what visual testing is
  • Identify where visual testing fits alongside other forms of testing
  • Describe how visual testing works
  • List use cases for visual testing
