Workshop: End to end testing with Cypress

This workshop teaches you how to test a modern web application using the Cypress.io end-to-end test runner. The application we are going to test uses the Vue.js framework, with Vuex data management and REST API calls, but the testing will be applicable to any modern web app, regardless of the technology it uses.

Knowledge of web development using JavaScript is required. Some basic Node.js skills are required as well.
