Cypress Test Automation Hackfest Kickoff

Cypress Test Automation Hackfest :rocket:

Win an exclusive Mattermost swag bag by making five contributions to the Cypress Test Automation campaign between July 27 and August 31, 2020. Plus top-3 contributors receive a special prize!

The Mattermost team is working on automating feature testing of the webapp to

  1. Decrease time to ship a bug fix release
  2. Raise the quality of the software by reducing number of manual tests

We’re excited to work with our community to significantly increase automated test coverage by August 31! In addition to making a huge impact on the project, you’ll get experience working with Cypress, one of the most popular open source test automation frameworks.

If it’s your first time contributing to Mattermost, you’ll also receive a custom-printed Mattermost Mug!
