Cypress core workshop

It’s made out of four sessions, each taking 3 hours. We will be learning by doing, so it’s packed with practical examples and real live problems that we will be solving.

Workshop is now updated to version 10 of Cypress, so you’ll get the latest and greatest!

Prečo core workshop

Why "core workshop"?

I have gathered a lot of experience doing Cypress workshops in Slovakia and Czechia and I’m bringing them to the whole world! Based on all the great feedback I have gathered, I decided to create a workshop that will go deep on core topics. Using practical testing examples, we will discover not only how to write a stable test, but also how Cypress works "under the hood"

My goal is to provide attendees with a firm knowledge of the core principles, which may be harder to obtain just by trial and error. This workshop is the result of my trials and errors, experiences and searches for best practices for writing stable and well written tests.

What is

It’s a tool for testing modern web applications. It’s made to be fast and provide a great user experience. It prompts developers to test effectively and testers to understand web applications better.
