Sebastian Ang, Cypress Ambassador

Meet Sebastian.

As a Cypress Ambassador, he looks forward to making an impact and helping improve software quality, specifically at the different national laboratories in the United States, and potentially even internationally.

What motivates you to be a Cypress Ambassador?

Trying to spread the joy of testing with Cypress and to improve software quality through test automation at my company, and potentially other national laboratories.

How do you currently help others that are either using Cypress or interested in using Cypress?

At my company, I co-host a cypress/test automation meeting, where I help answer any questions related to cypress and present ideas of how we use cypress in different situations.

What is your favorite Cypress feature?


What is your favorite "Cypress Best Practice" and why?

Making sure that tests do not rely on the previous test's state. You always want a new clean state when a test runs.

Outside of work, what are your favorite things to do (hobbies, passions, etc.)?

I love cooking! Smoking meats on my Traeger. I have also been slowly picking up golf as a new hobby.

What is one professional milestone you are proud of? (an accomplishment, celebration, recognition, etc.)

Becoming a cypress ambassador.

For new users -  what is the best way to "get started" with Cypress?

Cypress has great documentation and tutorials on their website. I 100% believe the best way to get started is to install cypress and follow their tutorials.

What is your favorite quote or saying?

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” -H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
