This is an approximate transcript of the talk I delivered at TestBash in Sydney on Friday 19th October 2018.
Today I’d like to share my story about how we started with automated end to end testing at WordPress.com since I started at Automattic over 3 years ago.

I only speak at one conference a year and this year that conference will be the first ever Australian Testbash in Sydney on October 19, 2018:
At WordPress.com we constantly deliver changes to our millions of customers – in the past month alone we released our React web client 563 times; over 18 releases every day. We don’t conduct any manual regression testing, and we only employ 5 software testers in a company of ~680 people with ~230 developers across . So, how do we ensure our customers get a consistently great user experience with all this rapid change?
Our automated end-to-end (e2e) tests give us confidence to release small frequent changes constantly to all our different applications and platforms knowing that our customers can continue to use our products to achieve their desires.
Alister will share how these automated tests are written and work, some of the benefits and challenges we’ve seen in implementing these tests, and what we have planned for future iterations.
