David Whitney - Test Driven Development in JavaScript – writing tests that don’t suck!


In this session we’ll talk about TDD in JavaScript, without the dogma, without the buzzwords, in simple clear examples, using Visual Studio Code, Jest and Wallaby.js
We’ll cover tooling, the TDD mindset, organisational patterns, naming, data driven tests, refactoring tests, and the one most important skill in testing – learning to test the characteristics of your code, not your implementations.
This talk is perfect for people who have never done TDD before, struggle to understand it’s value, or feel held back by brittle tests that feel like mud. It’s the summation of 15 years of teaching testing across static and dynamically typed languages, and I promise, even if you think you know testing there’s something in here for you.
Live coding included!
