Workshop Description

Test Driven Development (TDD) with React is an introduction to TDD workshop using the Jasmine testing library. In this workshop, we'll take participants who are new to TDD or looking to improve their skill through the technique. Participants will be grouped based on TDD experience so that we can better engage and teach different material. The tracks range from testing simple text being rendered from a React component onto a page to using mock and spies for external calls. This workshop is intended to reach out to women, transgender and non-binary people, and people of color.
