About the talk
Automated Testing at the Speed of Headless - Samantha Coffman | Product Manager at Sauce Labs + Alissa Lydon | Product Marketing Manager at Sauce Labs
Testing is shifting left. You are a developer who wants instant feedback on the quality of your code. Or you are a tester who wants to incorporate tests earlier in the pipeline without slowing down development efforts. Sauce Labs is great for cross browser functional testing, but using full browsers earlier in the pipeline can be clunky, and too expensive for the volume needed.
Enter Sauce Headless – a new solution from Sauce Labs that allows you to run your automated tests at speeds you used to only dream of! Using headless Chrome and Firefox on Linux containers, Sauce Labs is the first in the market to offer early pipeline testing infrastructure. The result is a fast and lightweight solution that is cost-effective for continuous testing at scale.
Join Sam Coffman, Product Manager at Sauce Labs, and Alissa Lydon, Product Marketing Manager at Sauce Labs, in a highly interactive session where they will discuss:
- How Sauce Labs is using container technology to create the industry’s first cloud-based headless testing solution, making it a fast and affordable option for early pipeline testing at scale
- The benefits of using Sauce Headless in conjunction with our traditional VM offering to increase the speed you can deliver quality code
- How easily Sauce Labs customers can set up their own headless instance in Sauce, without having to build and maintain an infrastructure themselves
- Real stories of customers who are experiencing upwards of 50% faster test times while using Sauce Headless
