Sessions Montréal 2019

Using javascript for IoT (Internet of Tums)

Session en anglais - Débutant

I used to get heartburn all the time, but is it "chronic heartburn"? To find out, I built an "Internet of Tums" device to automatically record when I was feeling the burn. I started with a cheap microcontroller, a button, some batteries, and a box of antacids but ended up with a detailed list of my symptoms. Learn about how I used IoT to solve my problem, and how you can leverage it to solve yours.

Your first tests with Headless Chrome

Session en anglais - Débutant

Headless Chrome is an awesome tool in end-to-end testing and browser automation that I think everyone should have in their tool belt. In this talk I'll cover how to use headless Chrome and Puppeteer to build a basic suite of automated tests to make sure your sites are following generic best practices. We will dig into getting Headless Chrome up and running, programmatic control using Puppeteer, and how to start using Headless Chrome for testing.
