Tecknuovo community update

On 25th May, we were excited to celebrate our community initiative’s first birthday! We’re proud to see how the community has grown and what’s becoming. We decided to take a look back over what’s been an amazing year of events and the people who made them so special. We also decided to take a look forward at new horizons and image what we hope we achieve in the future. Huge thank you to all community members, we couldn’t do it without you!

Hunting Bugs with Puppeteer and AWS Lamba- Online Meetup – Register here

One of the worst bugs to have is the one that is hard to reproduce but has very serious consequences. Searchmetrics recently faced with one such bug after they added a new caching layer to our application.

Sarah Wachs from Searchmetrics will share their approach and what the Searchmetrics team learned on the way.

JS Monthly Lunchtime Meetup #02, June Online Meetup – Register here

This talk is for UI engineers who feel like giving up writing tests! When relying heavily on UI frameworks (React, Angular or Vue), integration tools like (Cypress or Protractor) and even browser intricacies (like HTML/DOM) to inform test decisions, you eventually grind to a halt because your tests have become too complicated! Instead of focusing on ‘tools’, the focus should be on architecture. Pete Heard will be joining and sharing his tips creating a testable UI architecture. Join in to learn the secrets of scaling your tests!
