How do I write Testable Javascript?

Presentation by Gavin Pickin

May 14, 2015
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Everyone who wasn't writing JavaScript, probably is now. Atwood's Law: any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript. That's great, but how do we test it. In ColdFusion we have CFCs, most languages have classes... but JavaScript doesn't have classes (yet). So how do I write unit tests, what units are there, and how do I make my code look like that.

JavaScript is a flexible language, and with great flexibility comes great complexity and responsibility. Take your JavaScript spaghetti and make it unit testable.

Attendees will learn

Attendees should have some exposure to JavaScript, but this is for the Professional Newbie... who always needs to learn and adapt.

This topic is not an easy one to fit into a 50 minute session... so to help attendees, and those reading along with the slides at a later time, these resources and walkthroughs, links etc, will help you with other pieces of the puzzle that I lightly breeze over in the main presentation.
