Cypress gets lots of community love

I took a risk with Cypress - and I’m glad I did.

Writing and maintaining tests is a necessity if you want confidence in your product when it ships, but it can be a frustrating experience. Cypress is a Javascript frontend test automation platform. Despite Cypress being a relative newcomer, it will likely replace Selenium Webdriver as the de facto standard.

Early in its inception, I fell in love with Cypress, teaching and promoting Cypress in the community in addition to using it in my day job. The commitment was risky. Today’s hot JavaScript framework could tomorrow’s old news.

More recently, I was invited to the Cypress Ambassador program, launched another workshop and started iheartjs - the iheartjs YouTube channel where I live-streamed the workshop and soon, a newsletter. To say the least, I've gone “all-in”.

Today, I’m attending the TestJS Summit and not only am I impressed by all the speakers so far, I’m blown away by all the love for Cypress! I never needed the community’s overwhelming approval to back a solid product, but today my commitment has been truly validated and I couldn’t help but take to Twitter:

Gleb Bahmotov also shared his excitement:

I’m so grateful for the Cypress community and even the JavaScript community as a whole. I have even greater confidence going forward which means more content for you in the near future!
