Optimize Your TDD

  • Speaker : Toby Ho
  • Available : Anytime
  • Duration : 30 minutes (but flexible)


Test-Driven Development has become increasingly important for web developers as Javascript-based web applications become more and more complex. However, TDD is not an easy discipline to master, and doing it well takes a lot of practice and learning. I will first explore and motivate the one reason why we do TDD after all: to be able to code faster. Then, I will present a set of principles, guidelines, tips and tools to help you optimize for your coding speed when TDD'ing.



Toby Ho is a Javascript hacker in Atlanta. He teaches a Javascript class monthly and is passionate about helping others learn. He is a practical practitioner of TDD, and also wrote a test runner called Testem - designed to streamline the TDD workflow.
