Webcast Recording | Shipping with Confidence: How DHL reduced test execution time by 50%

Back to Cypress blog

Last week, our VP of Engineering, Gleb Bahmutov, and DHL Software Engineer, Rick Fleuren, presented a live webcast on how the DHL team uses Cypress in combination with Docker and Jenkins to cut their test execution time in half.

Some of the key topics they covered include:

  • How the team accomplishes full E2E test runs without needing to rely on mocks or stubbing
  • Multiple ways of achieving parallelization with minimal effort, through the power of Docker containers and the help of Jenkins built-in parallelization
  • How the DHL team reduced their test execution time from 7 minutes to 3.5 minutes by parallelizing their Cypress tests

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:
