Webcast Recording | How PlanGrid (Autodesk) Achieved Consistency in Automation Across 20 Development Teams

Back to Cypress blog

Last week, our VP of Engineering, Gleb Bahmutov, Engineering Manager at Plangrid (Autodesk), Graeme Harvey, and Tech Lead at Plangrid (Autodesk), Brendan Drew, presented a live webcast on how the Automation Platform team runs over 900 Cypress tests daily to make sure PlanGrid’s mission-critical services are available worldwide with the highest quality and accuracy.

Some of the key topics they covered include:

  • How they’ve been successful in dispersing maintenance across all development teams.
  • How they created an internal library to share custom Cypress commands and integrations
  • How they brought consistency to 20+ repositories using shared functions and CI integrations

The questions we received were all fantastic - thanks to all who attended the live broadcast via Zoom or YouTube Live, and to those who asked live questions via Slido. You can watch the webcast recording below:


The presentation slides can be found here. If you asked questions during the webcast that were not answered live, you can now see replies to your questions in Slido.

We’d also like to give a shout out to the viewers who gave us some incredible feedback via our post-webcast survey. If you watched the webcast and completed the survey, keep an eye on your mailbox for a surprise!
