JavaScript Testing

About This Course

In this course you'll learn how to write JavaScript applications with confidence, using the red-green-refactor workflow. You'll write comprehensive suites of tests that validate your application is functioning as intended at all times. You'll start by exploring how other industries use a variety of tests and the value it provides. You'll then start writing your very own tests, using the Jasmine testing framework. Finally, you'll start developing your very own address book application using the red-green-refactor workflow and explore a variety of scenarios including testing asynchronous functions.
