Abstract/Description

Today's applications run on the web, and they're only getting more complicated. The old "toss a few lines of JavaScript on a page and pray it doesn't break" approach doesn't cut it any more. In this session, we look at applying rigorous software development techniques like test-driven development to the problems of cross-browser, cross-platform JavaScript development. Bring your laptop and be prepared to code!
