About this event

It’s time for another meetup! For this event, we’ll get our hands on the keyboard with a workshop from Spec, Slack’s developer conference. After checking in, we'll kick off with a quick overview of the workshop and then dive into the content. Light snacks and beverages will be available, and there will be plenty of time to ask questions - and do a little socializing if that's your thing. Register now to save your spot - space is limited!

Functional Testing

Creating a robust test suite can be the difference between updating your app with confidence, or a mob of angry users. A good set of tests helps you release apps with more certainty. Learn about the purpose and benefits of functional testing and how to apply it to Slack apps using the Jest test framework with Puppeteer. You'll leave knowing some top tips (plus pitfalls to avoid) and having written a test or two.

We’ll cover:

  • What functional tests are and how they benefit your organization
  • Functional tests vs. Unit tests
  • Tools for testing
  • Applying tests to simple and advanced apps
  • Cleaning up your tests when they’re through
  • Tips for thinking about and running tests in the future
