Continuous Deployment of Frontend JavaScript with StriderCD, Github & Sauce Labs

Join us for our next meetup on August 14 with Niall O'Higgins and Peter Braden of Frozen Ridge. They'll be talking about how to test your Javascript as part of a continuous deployment process with StriderCD, an open source CI platform.

We'll kick things off at 6:30 with pizza and beer followed by the talks around 7pm. Thanks to our friends at Tagged for hosting. We appreciate it!


The Continuous Deployment process offers clear efficiency benefits to software organizations. However, implementing CD for your own projects can be very time-consuming. Front-end JavaScript projects in particular can be difficult to get up and running with tests across multiple browsers on different OSes.

StriderCD is an Open Source Continuous Deployment platform similar to Jenkins or Travis with an emphasis on extensibility, ease-of-setup and private deployment. It has plugins for most major JavaScript test frameworks (qunit, jasmine, etc) and cloud browser service providers such as Sauce Labs.

This talk will describe how you can use it to easily test your front-end JavaScript projects on each Github commit with Sauce Labs.


Niall O'Higgins is a founder at FrozenRidge LLC. He wrote the book "MongoDB and Python" published by O'Reilly and is one of 10gen's MongoDB Masters. He is the primary author of Strider, an Open Source Continuous Delivery platform. He previously worked on, a "public database of all the world's knowledge" (acquired by Google in 2010) and was an OpenBSD project committer.

Peter Braden is a founder at FrozenRidge LLC. He has worked at a variety of start ups on a handful of technology stacks. Most recently he helped Yammer's rapid growth by architecting viral features - he created their chat feature. He's the creator of the node-opencv bindings, node-ical, and a handful of other libraries. He's an expert in crafting intuitive javascript widgets, architecting both front and back end javascript, and generally doing whatever it takes to make responsive and powerful web apps.
