Overall Satisfaction with Sauce Labs

My company is big enough that there is no "one way" to do things. It is used here and there across the company, but there is a dedicated Slack channel for it, so that is good.
  • Gets good people to work for it. These guys and gals are freed and just want you to succeed.
  • Sauce Labs listens to what the customers want. (Though I could still use an AWS East-1, hint-hint.)
  • They come to us when we ask, so that is pretty cool.
  • Some of the documentation is old.
  • Some of the documentation is missing for pure beginners. There are companies that throw newbies to the wolves with testing and say, "Go do this thing."
  • "This thing" can't always be done with the enormity of the new toys that are available if those toys don't have "Step 1: Power on computer" kinds of tutorials.
  • Eh... Negligible? Being on AWS West makes it quite a few hops for us, so the process times out every now and again. That is frustrating.
  • I can't really speak to the dollars, as I am not privy to the information.
It works great in that I don't have to deal with evergreen browsers or a VM lab. I spin up what I want, and I go for it.
I am a little excited about the new docker boxes. I don't really know what they do, but I am excited to see if it is what I think it is.
The engagement process with secret sauce is a little kitschy. Not particularly my style, but whatever.
Sauce Labs also simplifies the Visual Validation Testing by not having to have two contracts. It sucks for Applitools, but competition is competition. Don't get me wrong, I love Adam and Moshe to death, but now they have to up their game a little bit.
