The course starts from the peak of the testing pyramid and goes down instead of following the “standard” testing path.

The most important scripts are:
$ npm run cy:open: starts the Cypress UI
$ npm run realworld:frontend:start: starts the front-end project

I’m Stefano Magni, I’m a passionate and positive-minded Senior Front-end Engineer, a Speaker, and an Instructor from Italy (working remotely since 2018). Developing User Interfaces, solving problems, and helping people are my passions.
I have worked in this field for more than ten years, including experience with different codebases (currently working on a 250K-LOC one) and various companies: a mid-size company, a Bitcoin startup, a web-agency, etc. organized through Scrum, Kanban, or classic Waterfall.
What I love:
- working with passionate people
- coding User Interfaces, solving the closest to the user problems
- writing maintainable and easy to refactor code
- guaranteeing the highest possible quality of my work with precise execution and problems prevention
- easing other developers and stakeholders work with high proactivity, communication, providing a lot of feedback, mentoring, and improving workflows
- actively looking for and proposing solutions for every kind of problem I see
- learning and solidifying/spreading my knowledge by speaking and teaching
In the last years, I became a speaker again, revamping my learning path completely, including answering on StackOverflow, writing articles, sharing plugins, and speaking at meetups.
I’m currently focused on React, TypeScript and all their ecosystems.
I wrote a big UI Testing Best Practices project on GitHub.
