Learning BackboneJS Testing
What you'll learn
- Learn to set up an optimized automated testing environment to reduce manual testing woes and lower the barrier to entry
- Use and customize a breadth of common testing tools to prepare you for real-world scenarios
- Implement the testing techniques on a BackboneJs application to build experience and increase comfort while testing
- Having knowledge of the node package management ecosystem will be beneficial, although not compulsory.
At the beginning, we'll discuss different testing philosophies and go over some testing basics. After establishing a motivation for and philosophy of testing, we're going to dive right into how we express our tests in Jasmine's BDD syntax. We'll also hone in on how to deal with the DOM and AJAX in our tests.
