Developers are unit testing, QA staff is integration testing, Users are acceptance testing. Do you really need to add browser automated tests too? Have you ever experienced side effects of upgrading third party components or server configuration changes? Do you have trouble testing your entire site to ensure bugs weren't introduced? If so, you may need browser automation testing. In this tutorial we will combine Puppeteer, Mocha, and Chai to automate your browser and test all your site's components. This will lead you to deliver your updates reliably and catch bugs before they get deployed. You can find the requirements for the workshop on this [website](

Derek's talk was a comprehensive overview of using Puppeteer, Mocha and Chai to test how your website/app renders in the browser and included code samples for testing javascript and css changes. I plan on using some of these concepts to automate updates made to responsive HTML for clients as well as for troubleshooting some web scraping scripts that we use.
