As a developer, I automate anything I can and encourage others to do so. I've founded ~14 startups and worked at ~12 FT jobs (at Microsoft, I worked on ~15 different teams). During that time, I noticed that UI automation was redundant and often an after-thought.
Testerbot was created as a no-code alternative to automate UI testing through three types of approaches to testing:
Fully-Automatic, Semi-Automatic, and Custom.
Normally, people build UI Automation that tests application functionality. This framework would target UI Automation for other buckets such as SEO, Security, Accessibility, Performance, UI, Data Validation, etc.
Right around this time, one of the coolest things had happened. Google had released the very first version of Puppeteer.
