What is this event all about?

Have you heard you should be testing your JavaScript code but it seems like a waste of time?  Are you frustrated because you don’t know where or how to start?  Does testing seem too complex?

In this interactive Meetup, James Brown, will deep-dive into JavaScript unit testing and Test Driven Development (TDD).  James will explore the following areas:

  • How to get setup with testing (both in browser JavaScript and Node.js)
  • Processes and tips for implementing TDD
  • Real-world test examples (we’ll write actual code)
  • How to use spies, stubs and mocks properly

This Meetup will be in an interactive formation and participation is encouraged.
