Last week, our VP of Engineering, Gleb Bahmutov, and Web Platform Lead at Big Nerd Ranch, Josh Justice, presented a live webcast on the concept of code smells as a way to categorize problems in code, and how this concept can make it easier to fix flaky Cypress tests.
Some of the key topics they covered include:
- Why test flake is so difficult to troubleshoot
- How the concept of code smells can make troubleshooting flake easier
- How to apply fixes for three specific Cypress code smells extracted from patterns in a large frontend application
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. If you asked a question that wasn't answered during the broadcast, you can check the answers here.
