We, at Wix Engineering, have our own dev-centric culture, built around empowering engineers not only as employees, but as contributing members to the global software community.
Given that 1 out of 6 developers at Wix Engineering contributes to open source projects, we feel that it is important for us to support and encourage our engineers to give back to the community. This is one of the reasons why, a few months ago, we partnered with GitHub for a special meetup about open source and OSS communities.

Last week, we were excited to see we ranked #11 on a global chart for open source contributions in Felipe Hoffa’s post “Who contributed the most to open source in 2017? Let’s analyze GitHub’s data and find out”, having dived into GitHub and came up with a list of companies that made the most efforts to create a significant contribution to the open source community.
It is a great opportunity to shed some light on our top 5 open sources projects:
The most difficult part of automated testing on mobile is the tip of the testing pyramid - E2E. The core problem with E2E tests is flakiness - tests are usually not deterministic. We believe the only way to tackle flakiness head-on is by moving from black box testing to gray box testing. That's where Detox comes into play.
