Front End TDD

TDD (Test Driven Development) has been used for a long time and has proven itself to be a strong methodology for building solid applications. In the beginning, you might feel like you are wasting time writing tests, but you will spend much less time later on finding the root causes of problems. More importantly, you can concentrate on small units of code and make sure each unit is of good quality. The numbers of tests will grow with the main code, and essentially, you’ll get early feedback on any problems in your application.

Most developers seem to agree that testing is good, but developers frequently disagree about how to test. In this session, I’ll break down some common misconceptions and hopefully teach you a few things about how you can benefit the most from front-end TDD (Test Driven Development) & BDD (Behavior Driven Development).
