Objective

While Javascript is mainstream in 2014, Javascript testing is not. Many developers have heard of Jasmine, Sinon and other libraries but very few have tried it out. Let’s change this!

This talk will show you how to not just test your javascript code but test drive it. Using Jasmine, Sinon and a few helpers, you can write specs (behavior definitions) easily and use them to write clean and maintainable code. The safety net provided by these specs is an added bonus. Increased development speed is another one.

Description

Basic knowledge of Javascript and HTTP
