Course Title
Test Driven JavaScript Application Development

Objectives
JavaScript is one of the most powerful dynamically typed languages. A good disciplined development approach is necessary to avoid that power turning into a maintenance nightmare. JavaScript code deserves automated testing. Writing automated tests is really not that hard once we learn a few tricks and techniques. That's the main objective of this course, to teach programmers the reasons to do automated testing, the level and the degree for those tests, and deeply technical approaches to achieve prudent test automation.
