Web Components: The future is now and Testing your JS with Jasmine

  • Jul 22, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Please submit your talk for future meetup Call for Speaker 


Web Components: The future is now

by Justin McNally

This talk revolves around the W3C spec for web components. Topics are the history of custom elements, Why custom elements are good, The future of native shadow-dom / custom elements, and how we can use them today (X-Tags & Polymer).

I would cover some philosophical topics around using and developing custom elements and then go into how they are used in practice and show demos of X-Tags, Polymer and Native components. Slide from a lightning  


Testing your JS with Jasmine

by Austin Vance

As your web applications grow, more and more logic seems to move client side. Long gone are the days of jQuery plugins and simple dropdowns. Now, we write fully featured applications on the client using the server only as a pipeline for data to a database. With this move to the client side it's import that we all test our javascript just as throughly as we test our server code.

Pivotal Labs has experience testing extremely large javascript applications and has written two of the most popular javascript testing frameworks in the past (JSUnit and Jasmine). I hope by the end of the talk you have a good understanding of some of the hardest parts of testing client side applications and are ready to install them in your company.

This talk will have lots of coding and we will assume an advanced knowledge of javascript and a preliminary knowledge of testing
