# Talks

## Effective testing: How to write tests that let you confidently deploy on a Friday
by Mohamed Oun

Have you ever worked on a codebase that had a high test coverage, yet regularly had bugs slip into production? This can lower our confidence in our tests, and make us question why we even bother with them. In this talk, we’ll cover how to write tests that get us the most value and confidence for the least effort.

## Reintroducing Advanced React Patterns
by Ohans Emmanuel

Design patterns exist to provide consistent solutions to common problems.

Advanced design React patterns also exist for providing consistent solutions to building truly reusable components.
With hooks, how we write these patterns have changed significantly. In this talk I will explain what’s changed, why they are important, and practical use cases for the 6 Advanced React Patterns with Hooks.

Even more interesting is the fact that I’ll do this with code & a lot of comic strips!

## End to End automation testing with Cypress
by Vitor Reis

In this talk, we will discuss some examples of common end to end test automation flows with cypress, it will be a hands-on talk with some live coding about testing web products with Cypress. Lessons learned & considerations on our search for high confidence in test automation in order to enable continuous deployment.
