Talk: Using End-to-end Tests as Documentation

Presentation abstract: Keeping the documentation up-to-date with the web application is hard. The screenshots and the videos showing the user how to perform some task quickly fall out of sync with the latest design and logic changes. In this presentation, I will show how to use end-to-end tests to generate the documentation.
By keeping the tests in sync with the application, and by running them on every commit, we will update the documentation, ensuring our users never get confused by the obsolete docs.
