Front-end Testing that You Won't Hate!

Engineering on the back end has a robust testing ecosystem. Increasingly, it’s possilbe to test your front end applications the same way you test the back end.

In days gone by, testing front end JavaScript code was cumbersome and brittle. However, as front end applications have become more robust and complex, it’s become ever more important to thoroughly test your applications.

We’ll explore common patterns in the React community then show off the power of Jest and Enzyme. You’ll see that these tools utilize familiar practices and will be ready to apply them to your applications.

You will get the most out of this talk if you have some prior programming experience, particularly if you enjoy testing. However, if you’re new to the field, the material will still be approachable.
