Automated web integration testing is very powerful, yet still a messy business. This session aims at making this messy ground clearer through proper definitions, an overview of the state of the art, presentation of current best practices, and a reflection on what this domain is still missing to reveal its full strength.
You will learn from the experience gained through 5 months of full-time research and development on the topic, and one year of usage in a continuous deployment environment, with fully automated cross-browser test suites being run in the cloud on every push.
By the end of the presentation, you will know exactly what is (and what isn't) integration testing on the web, what you can expect from it, how your production pipeline could integrate it, and which difficulties we as a community should focus on solving.
