Talk Summary

Developers today are flooded with a plethora of tools and jargon for testing web applications. This talk will walk intermediate to advanced developers through the basic concepts for testing web applications along with sound strategies for adopting a smooth testing workflow.

The talk will consist of three parts:

1. A look at the goals of testing, and why it is a critical part of web development.

2. An exploration of testing concepts and terminology.

3. Demonstration of both end-to-end testing with Selenium, and Unit Testing with Venus.js.
