For years we’ve pointed out that unless you think of the check up-front, tools that drive the user interface will never find certain kinds of problems.
That is, the kind of problems where you instinctively know it is a problem, and respond “huh, that looks odd …”

This is something we wanted to learn more about, so we started to collaborate. Most recently, Justin Rohrman has started blogging for Applitools; here are his first two posts:
If you’re looking to see Matt in person, he will be at Agile Testing Days in Germany in a few weeks, and Agile and Beyond in Dearborn, Michigan, in May. 2017 may be the year we slow down the travel a bit, but Excelon should have a contingent at CAST 2017 in August in Nashville at the very least..
More to come!
