TDD with Javascript
Chris Powers Test Driven Development has become the de facto standard for quality back-end development, yet most front-end developers are unfamiliar with the techniques. Turns out it's easier than you think! I will walk you through an introductory tutorial to demonstrate how TDD can improve the quality of your Javascript code and give you a test suite safety net to protect you from sneaky regression errors in the future.
8:30pm Head over to Dylan's for continued conversation and drinks
