Chris, Alex, and Marie are here to talk about how we’ve started testing with Cypress. We talk about the kind of testing we do at CodePen, where the need for it came from, and what our experience has been like using Cypress so far.
Netlify, the powerful and awesome web host we all know and love, now is offering AWS Lambda functions built right in. You make a folder for all your functions, and they become relative paths you can hit to execute those functions. One reason you might wanna do that? Keeping your third-party API keys safe! Just another ingredient that make your fast static sites… not so static.
