On the TechBeacon site they've posted an article about choosing the right testing tools for your codebase and why making the right choice matters.
Fast end-to-end tests are the next big thing. The tooling has improved tremendously, and the productivity and insight gains are too good to ignore. Modern tools such as Cypress and >TestCafe are becoming quite impressive and can give you confidence in your product's quality.
As with most facets of software development, there is a balance to be strived for between speed and test confidence. The leverage point depends on the project, and the two most common types of software project these days are web services and enterprise software.
They talk about some of the differences between the testing of web services versus enterprise software as well as some of the practical advantage of fast tests. They also cover the advantages of broad tests and cover some of the current tools for testing including Cypress.io and Laravel Dusk.
