Confidence and Maintainability Testing React Applications by Matt Parrish

Following the guidance that “The more your tests resemble the way your software is used, the more confidence they can give you”, we’ll explore the pros and cons of different strategies and libraries for unit testing react components.

Better Faster Stronger: High Fidelity Prototypes by Morgan Whaley

We know that front end engineering and design can be plagued with a widening chasm. Clickable prototyping tools and style guides have helped facilitate the collaboration process but how do we assess technical feasibility, test with users in a closer-to-real-world environment, and make sure everyone is on the same page with expectations of visuals and interactions?

Creating high fidelity prototypes in Javascript are an overlooked process that can address all these issues. They can be created with real data and build real user experiences for the benefit of internal teams as well as the end user.

Morgan is a senior prototype architect at Charter Communications in Denver. She's developed for many companies in her 7-year development career and worked as a designer for 10 years prior to that. She lives in Denver and spends her time hiking, racing cars, running, and making cocktails.
