Nov 20, 2013 · San Jose, United States of America

Hello everyone:

Join us for an evening focused on all things related to JavaScript testing. We have a great line up for the evening. Come and participate as our presenters share their insights and learnings on JavaScript testing. Don't miss out! 

5:30pm - 6:00pm: Pizza, networking, recruiting announcements (come find me if you have any) , etc.

6:00pm - 6:30pm:  Vojta Jina - Karma : test runner that makes makes testing JavaScript applications in real browsers frictionless and enjoyable.

Testing is not optional when one is building a JavaScript application that must work across many browsers and devices. However executing tests in all of these various environments is hard. Karma turns this typically pain-staking task into a piece of cake. It allows you to execute JavaScript tests in real browsers or devices such as your phone or tablet directly from the comfort of your terminal or your favorite IDE.

6:30pm - 7:00pm: Matt Edelman - Nemo: Functional Testing in NodeJS

Nemo provides a highly configurable scaffolding for selenium-webdriver based functional tests. Nemo is ready to integrate with a task-runner (like GruntJS) and its functionality can be extended via plugins. Nemo can manage functional testing throughout the development lifecycle of a NodeJS project. Demonstration of developer usage of Nemo and discussion of system components and design decisions.

7:30pm - 8:00pm - Reid Burke - You Can Test Everywhere, featuring Yeti

The YUI team has been shipping high-quality releases faster than ever while supporting the latest iOS all the way back to IE 6. How do we do it? We run over 100K tests across a dozen different real browser environments every time YUI is changed on GitHub. Learn how you can test like we do and how to avoid common testing pitfalls as your project grows. You'll also learn about Yeti, the open-source test runner that makes it all possible.

8:00pm - 8:30pm Santiago Suarez Ordoñez - The story of Javascript Testing: Selenium is dead, long live Selenium!!

I'll tell you how browser testing has evolved over the last 6 years and where I think it should go for front end engineers to finally start seeing it as a tool, a very valuable one, rather than "that complicated java-selenium thang that I don't want to deal with
