Should you write UI tests?

UI testing is a point of conflict amongst app developers. When asked in a recent poll on whether app devs write them, over half don't!

We all understand the importance of writing great unit tests for your APIs so why should your UI not benefit from the same care?

This session will explore the benefits of writing UI tests. We'll show you how to get started with UI testing with Selenium and C#. Plus, a look at how you can make your UI testing process maintainable with speed with code re-use.
