Filling the Testing Gap: Testing Your Client-side Code with Jasmine??

Filling the Testing Gap: Testing Your Client-side Code with Jasmine??

What comes to mind when you hear the word "testing?" For many the answer is back-end unit testing. For others it is interface driven testing using something like Cucumber or Selenium. But working on web applications, one layer of the application is consistently neglected: JavaScript. As the JavaScript code in web applications becomes ever more complex, it is more important than ever to have a solid foundation of unit tests to build on. Jasmine is a testing framework that can help you do just that.

About the speaker: Joshua Clanton

Joshua Clanton is a Senior UI Developer at Hobsons, where he works on improving user experience through quality code.

When he's not writing JavaScript or hanging out with family, you're likely to find Joshua with his nose stuck in a Science Fiction novel.

He is the publisher of the weekly A Drip of JavaScript Newsletter -

He is also the author of Jasmine Testing for JavaScript: A Cloak and Dagger Guide -
