Here's a list of all my podcast interviews
Web Testing And Automations With Playwright
Steve and Debbie talk about the Microsoft tool called “Playwright”. It is a framework for Web Testing and Automation. Moreover, they go into how the testing works, its useful features, and how it has more advantages than other testing solutions.
Testing Web Apps using Playwright
How do you test your web applications? Carl and Richard talk to Debbie O'Brien about Playwright, Microsoft's new open-source web application testing tool. Playwright lets you build tests in an array of languages, platforms, and browsers. Debbie talks about how you can build atomic tests that will survive new versions, and test independently of other features. And when tests fail, Playwright generates a PWA of the test run showing exactly where the test fails!
