Originally of Canadian extraction, Alexander Pope now works and lives in the wilds of Oslo, keeping one eye on the sky as he works on the weather for NRK and We will first enjoy his critically-acclaimed (at JSConf EU, JS Kongress, etc.) talk "Outbreak", followed by a session dedicated to Service Workers testing.

August 30, 2016, was by all accounts an average Tuesday, and release number 523 just a simple re-factor, but something went horribly wrong that day: bad code escaped from the office, and it quickly spread to infect tens of thousands, giving rise to a hoard of zombie ServiceWorkers!

This is a disaster about a typo. This is a thriller about technology out of control. This is a tragedy about wasted CPU cycles. This is a cautionary tale about living in the age of ServiceWorker.

Service Workers testing

The goal of this talk is to provide some practical examples and methodologies for testing service workers that you can take away and apply in a fashion that works for your project and team.
