Tools like Mocha and Jest help Javascript developers to write automated tests for their code and a traditional manner - you write some example code and assert some things about the results of that code.

Generative testing, in contrast, allows programmers to work on a broader level by specifying properties that code should always satisfy.

This talk will use real-world examples to demonstrate the use of generative testing (using testcheck-js) to test a balanced tree library in Javascript.
