Abstract

Aurelia is a new, upcoming JavaScript framework from Durandal that is written in ES6 and ES7 that can run in ES5. Aurelia attempts to do more with less to ease the learning curve. It supports two-way binding, custom HTML elements, template generation, routing, testing, and more! This talk will go over what Aurelia is, why it isn’t just another JavaScript framework, and go through some coding examples. Aurelia will light up the night sky and guide you when you get lost in the forest of JavaScript!

Abstract

Testing is one of the most important cornerstones to quality software. Testing your server-side javascript using Node can be tricky, but can be done, usually without needing to change the code base. This session will show how to mock and test using Sinon and the Mocha framework. I will also touch on how to set up client-side testing of Javascript using JsTestDriver. JsTestDriver tests your code simultaneously in many browsers. Unit testing your code is critical to ensuring that it works correctly when integrated with other parts of your application. It also supports maintenance over time by testing that changes don’t inadvertently affect other parts of the system.

Here is what will be covered:

  • Popular testing tools & frameworks
  • Utilities to help test code
  • Server side testing with Mocha
  • Stubs and Mocks
  • Code coverage
  • Client-side testing with JsTestDriver

Google has a superheroic Javascript framework called AngularJS, which is a Model View Controller approach to making client side web based applications. John Ptacek is going to be doing an introduction to Angular, and take a spin through some of its features and functionality. There will be chemistry.
