All About QUnit

This Jax.js we'll be covering QUnit, a Javascript unit testing framework. Originally developed by John Resig for use with jQuery, this framework can be used to test any Javascript.

Paul Elliott will be giving an introduction to QUnit similar to his jQuery Conf talk on the same subject, explaining how you can use test-driven development methodologies to test your JS as you're developing it.

For a real-world example of how and when to use QUnit, Cameron Daigle will be demonstrating how he used QUnit to unit test a jQuery plugin he authored, miniCal. You'll learn what aspects of a plugin should have test coverage, how to organize your tests into modules, and examples of abstracting commonly used code within your test suite.

    Also, a couple more links: was mentioned as Hashrocket's current solution for pairing with Minical to allow date/time selection Jasmine is a more in-depth & structured testing framework that's worth checking out as well.
