Webinar: Cypress Vs Selenium WebDriver: Better Or Just Different?

December 11, 2019 @ 10:30 pm - 11:30 pm IST

DATE: Wednesday, Dec 11, 2019

TIME: 9 am PT / 5 pm UTC / 10:30 pm IST

“Is Cypress better than Selenium WebDriver? I get asked this a lot. And frankly, the easiest path of a “this vs that” talk is to try and find out which is “best”. But I will not take that path. Instead, I will try and explain how is Cypress different from Selenium WebDriver.”
— Gil Tayar, Sr. Architect @ Applitools

There’s a new claim to the throne of functional test automation tools: Cypress.io.

Is Cypress fast? Yes. Is Cypress interactive? Yep. Is Cypress reliable? You bet. And best of all… it’s cool! But is Cypress an alternative to Selenium WebDriver?

In this webinar, we will not try to take the easy path of “who’s better”. Instead, Gil will show how is Cypress different from Selenium WebDriver, demonstrate how to write Cypress test, how it’s used, and discuss how these 2 tools differ.

Gil will cover the following topics:

  • How and why do frontend developers write tests
  • The Selenium architecture
  • The Cypress architecture
  • Live demo of Cypress
  • How does Cypress deal with flakiness
  • Cypress and backdoors to development
  • Visual testing using Cypress

Speaker: Gil Tayar | Senior and Evangelist @ Applitools
