7:30 pm: "The Art of AngularJS" by Matt Raible

"The Art of AngularJS" by Matt Raible

AngularJS is one of today's hottest JavaScript MVC Frameworks. In this session, we'll explore many concepts it brings to the world of client-side development: dependency injection, directives, filters, routing and two-way data binding. We'll also look at its recommended testing tools and build systems. Finally, you'll learn about my experience developing several real-world applications using AngularJS, HTML5 and Bootstrap.

"In-Browser Testing with KarmaJS" by Scott Davis

Unit testing can be hard -- especially across multiple browsers -- but that's not an excuse not to do it, right? 


Luckily, KarmaJS makes it easy to thoroughly test your JavaScript across all of the browsers you need to support. Born out of the AngularJS project, KarmaJS wraps your existing tests -- whether written in Jasmine, QUnit, Mocha, or otherwise -- and makes it easy to run them either in local browsers or across the wire. "Across the wire" means that your tests can also run in real browers on real devices like iPhones, Android phones, iPads, etc. as well. Oh, and did I mention KarmaJS tests can run in PhantomJS -- a headless browser that allows you to run your tests on your Continuous Integration server like TravisJS, Jenkins, Hudson, etc.? 

Come see what a modern web testing environment looks like with KarmaJS.

    Fantastic turnout! Given that a lot of the material was over my head (I'm not a developer though) the speakers made it engaged enough to enjoy. Good food, good material, good times!
