Shipping with confidence: Testing React Applications w/ Ben Johnson

This Meetup is past

26 people went


Hi JavaScriptLA fans, this meetup is going to show you what to do in order to boost your confidence about the code you write.

Feel like you’re crossing your fingers before every release, hoping for the best? Or feel like QA is always finding regressions? Afraid that writing tests is going to take so long that you miss your deadlines?

We’re gonna take a look at what a holistic testing strategy looks like and ways that you can sell it to your company. Then we’ll get some hands-on experience writing some automated tests together to see their potential to increase confidence in the code that we push to production.

Lastly, we’ll have some time for Q&A to address any burning questions you might have about adding automated tests to your workflow.

About the Presenter:

Ben Johnson is a frontend engineer with a passion for clean UIs and readable code. He has been working with JavaScript and React for a couple years after a past life as a freelance musician. You can follow him on



Medium to see what he’s been up to lately.
