YYC.js Bootcamp #4

The focus for this session will be testing with an emphasis on how to do it client side. Things that we will try to cover:

  • Test Frameworks (QUnit, Jasmine, Mocha)
  • How do you even write tests??!
  • How do you run them?
  • How to test jQuery functions/plugins
  • How to structure your vanilla JS code so it can be tested
  • Headless browsers anyone? (PhantomJS, ZombieJS)
  • Cross browser testing (testling, selenium?)

This bootcamp will probably be a little lighter on content with more time for open discussion on various JS topics (hopefully sticking mostly on testing). Come on out and bring a friend, it's gonna be some good times!

    Hey David, is it possible to have copy of the presentation tomorrow?
    I can't make it but I'm really interested in the testing side of JS! I'm trying to introduce JS testing at work, and am having a hard time getting the testing frameworks to work with our build server. Any chance we can do a webcam recording of the presentation for download later? :p

    I've got a sandwich platter coming and I think there's some egg salad on it. There's also a veggie platter.
