As Javascript code gets more advanced and we start using frameworks like Backbone.js, it becomes ever more prudent to have tests for our Javascript code. Tests allow us to be confident that we don't break our application when installing new versions of jQuery or adding new functionality.

In this talk I'll introduce using Jasmine for testing your Javascript code along with using grunt and Node.js so you can test your code as part of a build process. Such build processes are vital in an era of continuous deployment.

    Very good talk! What was even more interesting than the 101 on Jasmine was the general discussion around the topic, and to hear real users talk about the choices and compromises they make around testing Javascript. Really friendly unfussy speaking style, and I'd like to hear what the speaker has to say about other topics.
