Commitment to Open Source
HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.
If you are interested in conducting a hands-on session on any of the topics falling under the themes described above, please submit a proposal under the workshops section. We also need you to tell us about your past experience in teaching and/or conducting workshops.
If you are interested in doing an unconference during the breakout sessions, propose a topic which will be of interest to the community.
Deadline for submitting proposals: 31 July 2015
Conference dates: 18-19 September
Workshops: 15, 16, 17 and 20 September
Project AutoMock and Jasmine: Testing Auto-magically
This session is about 3 things.
1. A Groundbreaking development philosophy.
2. A radical testing framework - Jasmine
3. A revolutionary fully automated fake server - AutoMock
In this session, I will introduce you to the development philosophy we follow developing web apps in my team at Adobe. It has worked wonders for us, bringing our regression bugs down from 50+ to 0 for the new version of our application.
Then we will learn how Jasmine can be used to easily handle large complicated workflows. I will demonstrate how Jasmine has been central to our efforts.
And last but not the least, I will unveil Project AutoMock. It is an exciting new project we are working on at Adobe. In short it is a fully automated mock server. If being a frontend developer you have ever had to wait for backend code to get ready or experienced super slow test cases that waited for API calls to load, you’re going to want to check this out.
