Workshop: Dead-Simple Testing with Mocha - Christopher Hiller, IBM

Feedback form is now closed.
If you haven’t written tests before, the subject can seem overwhelming. You might have questions like:
- “What’s a unit test?”
- “What’s an assertion?”
- “What’s a test fixture?”
…and that’s just the terminology!

A maintainer of Mocha since 2014, Chris will tenderly guide you through basic testing concepts using the JavaScript testing framework, Mocha. Chris will offer non-overwhelming, real-world examples of Mocha usage and how you can apply this to your own codebase. If you “don’t know what you don’t know” about testing JavaScript, this tutorial will clarify what you don’t know. In the nicest way possible, of course.
