Adapting to evolving technologies can be challenging. Learning new habits, embracing new ways of working, and adapting to the rate of change are all obstacles that need to be overcome. As a community, we are at a tipping point. We are changing how websites are built, used and hosted. We are even changing our perception of what a website is and does. Fortunately, Drupal is at the forefront of these changes. The release of Drupal 8, built using global PHP coding standards and other modern technologies, shows that this is the perfect time to be working with Drupal.

How do you tell if a change you made to your website has unintended side effects? Security updates should rarely result in anything changing visually, but how can you be sure?

Visual regression testing automates the comparison process by taking screenshots of two URLs and comparing them. You can view a report that highlights the differences and use the pass/fail result to make decisions.
