Well Behaved JavaScript with Screw.Unit

6:00 pm
Pizza and networking time

6:30 pm

Come and see how you can use Screw.Unit for front-end testing of javascript code. How you can/should organize your front-end code and how I approach testing of front-end.

Screw.Unit is BDD style javascript testing framework. It is geared towards testing jQuery, but possible to use for Prototype and some other frameworks as well. It has RSpec similar syntax which makes it easy to start working with it.

Screw.Unit is popular because of tight integration with Ruby On Rails using BlueRidge plugin but can be used independently just as succesfully.


Zeljko (Zack) Dakic started developing software on silly gummy keyboard of ZX Spectrum long time ago programming simple games. When online was connecting to BBS, he wrote so called 'doors'. More recently he's been doing consulting under his own flag as Dakic OnLine using both open source and Microsoft technologies. In MS camp he likes VB and C#, while Ruby and PHP and what he uses in his OSS projects. He is proud that he can use best of both worlds. Last two years he's been focused on front-end development more then usual and developed taste for writing javascript.

Zeljko can be found on twitter as @desireco. When not working, aside from raising cute kids, he follows any Sci-Fi show that is current and is avid reader of Sci-Fi as well.
