Welcome to the first node.ninjas of 2017!
We hope you enjoyed your break (if you had one!) over the holiday period, but we're back for your pizza fuelled node.js needs.
First off, we have a change of the advertised venue, unfortunately the booked venue didn't work out, however we have found a last minute supporter in Gilbert + Tobin, a tech focused law firm with an amazing office space with SafetyCulture providing the drinks and food. A map to the location can be found here:
We have three talks for you this month, in addition to any lightening talks you may wish to present:
TDD and You
• Why to write tests for you application
• How to convince your company that writing tests will save you time and money
• How to structure an application to make writing tests easy
- Jacob Bass
Managing micro-services for your company
This talk is aimed to introduce API management and how various cogs of technology may be implemented such that companies are able to succeed by building a deep foundation whilst moving at the speed of Agile.
Introduction to Jest testing framework
You'll see awesome features, and neat tricks of the Facebook backed Jest testing framework. There'll be a comparison of what it can/cannot do comparing to other JS testing frameworks.
- Vas Boroviak
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
