Test Driven Development Part II

  • January 17, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • MATRIX Resources, Inc.

Happy new years everybody! To kick off this 2012, Brendan Erwin from the Network is presenting on Testing Driven Development, leading up to Behavior Driven Development (a style of TDD) using Jasmine, as well as some of the ins-and-outs of what he and his team learned from the tools they used to pull it off.

Also, lightning talks! In the spirit of encouraging participation, we are opening up the floor for lightning talks after the initial talk. If you have something to share: a great library, a great article, some Javascript news, some code you played with, or anything else you want others to know about, come right up and give a 5 minute spiel about it - there is no need to sign up before hand.

  * Jasmine/BDD

  * Other tools of TDD

    Very good, I likes seeing coffeescript even though I have no idea how to write it. The presenters had an excellent style and seemed very well prepared and also good at what they do. They presented on a level that was acceptable to all levels. It wouldn't have been TOO complicated for total newbies and yet was complex enough to leave the more seasoned developers thinking. I love TacoMac, but may I suggest we go to cheeseburger in paradise next time, it will be quieter, less crowded and quicker to get a table. Only drawback would be less beer selection.

    Really enjoyed hearing about the details of the evolutionary process that led the team to exploring Mocha. Getting into CoffeeScript and Mocha now.
