We work with many Javascript based tools in our day to day lives.
But how do we take those tools from being used by a single person on a machine and integrate it into a team's workflow?
How can we link those tool into chains and go from a tool to a process? :)

In this talk I will discuss how I converted PhantomCSS, a tool for visual regression testing, and integrated it into our workflow. I will also cover the challenges we faced which ranged from integrating the tests into our CI, test execution taking too long, ability to browse the test results and notifying developers about failed regressions.

Looking forward to the small demo the speaker will release soon.
Hope badoo will release more open source software in the future.

I really enjoyed Nikhil's talk especially because he brought up tools and techniques that are used every day in a real, mid-sized company. I feel like I got a lot of food for thoughts and a better understanding of pratices that very few people (and companies) actually use and that can be extremely beneficial to embrace for the next project.

Super useful!
I loved the part where the speaker asked the attendees to find the difference between two pictures in 5 secs.

Very interesting approach to testing! Leaves open issues on how to treat false positives in a clever and scalable way, but totally worth hearing!

It's hard to see this kind of tests in the wild, so Nikhil's talk has been a great chance to see how they made things work.

Really good talk.

Only reason I'm not giving it a 5* is not speakers fault: It's not something easy to set up and it takes a lot of moving parts to do it. If their own tool was opensourced and ready for me to use it tomorrow (one for showing diff on images) I would give it 5* without thinking.
