Details

Are you writing enough tests for your applications? We thought not! Ryan Roemer of Formidable Labs (http://formidablelabs.com) and author of the new book Backbone Testing (http://backbone-testing.com/) will help us learn how to test your JavaScript applications in a 3 hour workshop at Redfin (http://redfin.com)'s beautiful downtown headquarters.

The workshop will be a mixture of lecture and hands on lessons. With the help of our fabulous mentors you'll learn how to use:

Mocha (http://visionmedia.github.io/mocha/)

Chai (http://chaijs.com/)

Sinon (http://sinonjs.org/)

PhantomJS (http://phantomjs.org/)

The workshop will demonstrate these test frameworks in the context of a simple Backbone application (which we will have ready for you to clone), but the workshop is not focused on Backbone.

Due to long wait lists and a persistent percentage of no-shows for SeattleJS meetups we will now be charging $3 to attend SeattleJS workshops starting in October. We hope this only discourages the no-shows and apologize for the inconvenience.
