Introducing Test Insights with flaky test detection

The CircleCI Insights dashboard was designed to help you improve your delivery efficiency. We launched the dashboard a year ago to provide teams with actionable data for optimizing your pipelines. Since then, we’ve been listening to your feedback. By far, the most requested functionality is the ability to gain further visibility into test performance.


Cloud Testing at Facebook

At Speedscale, we are on the cutting edge of defining autonomous testing for the cloud era. However, we aren’t the only company trying to solve this problem and we enjoy learning from every perspective. That’s why Facebook’s recent blog article about autonomous testing caught my eye. They’ve built a sophisticated autonomous test system that introduces many of the same techniques we utilize.


API mock testing with Nock

For the latest full-stack applications to work, a backend service is required. That is especially true when the frontend service depends on the backend service to render data. In many cases, it can be difficult to replicate the setup of the backend services so that you can test the application. This tutorial will show you how to mock HTTP requests from an API so that you can test endpoints without actually calling them in your tests. This tutorial covers these topics.


Beyond API testing with Jest

Jest is a JavaScript-based testing framework that lets you test both front-end and back-end applications. Jest is great for validation because it comes bundled with tools that make writing tests more manageable. While Jest is most often used for simple API testing scenarios and assertions, it can also be used for testing complex data structures. In this tutorial, we will go through how to use Jest to test nested API responses and hopefully have fun in the process.


Well-tested code: in search of meaningful coverage

If you work anywhere near the field of software development, you’ve likely already heard that you should always write code that is well-tested. Everyone wants to have well-tested code and for a good reason! Testing ensures our code is working as intended and protects against regression. Thoroughly testing code helps teams confidently ship software faster and with fewer issues.

Testing with k6 + Grafana: Better together by Nicole van der Hoeven

k6 is one of the newest additions to the Grafana Labs family, but what exactly is it, and what does it have to do with Grafana? In this session, Nicole van der Hoeven will demonstrate how to use k6, how to integrate it with Grafana, and why k6 and Grafana are better together. Nicole van der Hoeven is a Developer Advocate at k6, living in the Netherlands.
