Webcast Recording | How Optimizely Tests Features and Feature Flags 300% Faster with Cypress

Back to Cypress blog

Last week, our VP of Engineering, Gleb Bahmutov, Software QA Engineer at Optimizely, Todd Seller, and Engineer Manager in Quality at Optimizely, Jeff Sing, presented a live webcast on how Optimizely tests features and feature flags 300% faster with Cypress.

Some of the key topics they covered include:

  • How Optimizely chooses when to write automation tests for feature flags
  • How they increased new feature coverage by 40%, and decreased incoming issues by 70%.
  • How Optimizely’s QA team has reduced their untested code from 28% to 0% using Cypress.

The questions we received were all fantastic - thanks to all who attended the live broadcast via Zoom, 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.
