We all know that testing is important, but this is often limited to unit testing and integration testing, focusing on the back-end of our application, and we tend to forget about testing the front-end. There are so many different types of tests that we need to run on the front-end, it’s hard to know where to start. There’s accessibility testing, performance testing, user testing, HTML validation, visual regression testing and UI testing — not to mention the countless tools available for each type, and the different ways to set them up.

We all know that testing is important, your project can't be run unless all your unit and integration tests are written (and pass), but we often forget about testing the front end. There are so many different tests we need to be running on the front end - accessibility testing, performance testing, user testing, HTML validation, visual regression testing - it's hard to work out what you need to test for and where to start.
Anyone who’s spoken to me at some point in November may get the impression that I’m a bit of a grinch. But don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, I love decorating my tree, singing carols, and doing Christmas cooking - in December. So for me to willingly be humming the 12 days of Christmas in October, it’s probably for something that I think is even more important than banning premature Christmas decorations, like front end testing.
