Synthetic Monitoring and e2e Testing: 2 Sides of the Same Coin

Speaking on 10:50 at Lowther Room
Despite the emergency of DevOps, software engineers and SREs still use different tools to achieve similar means. Case in point: Synthetic Monitoring versus E2E Testing. We can combine forces and use the same tool for both production monitoring and testing within CI. In this talk, I will discuss how Synthetic Monitoring and E2E Testing are two sides of the same coin. Furthermore, I shall show how production monitoring and development testing can be achieved using Playwright JS, GitHub Actions and Elastic Synthetics.
