About this event

Brandon Murray (Full-stack developer / owner of MobileWear Inc. and software consultant for Surge, LLC) will be presenting on Automated Visual Testing. He describes what we'll learn as: "I first heard about Applitools through one of my colleagues at Surge in spring of 2017. I was explaining some of the challenges with my current client. Specifically, the amount of time developers spend testing each release (developers are the QA department) and how there was an initiative to focus on CD (continuous delivery). I mentioned that while we have several functional tests, they did not verify that our application’s pages look like they should. This is when my Surge colleague suggested I look into Applitools.
Over the course of several “Improvement Days” my client holds, I was able to work on a POC with Applitools. The project I work on is a web application that consists of the Java Selenium automation environment using JUnit. It was pretty straight forward getting things setup via Applitool’s getting started page as you can see here:"
