YUI Theater: Nicholas Zakas — "Test-Driven Development with YUI Test"

By YUI TeamOctober 20, 2008

Nicholas C. Zakas speaks at Yahoo on October 9, 2008.

Nicholas Zakas is the author of the YUI Test component and as principal frontend engineer on the Yahoo Front Page team. A few weeks back, he gave a talk at the 2008 Yahoo Frontend Engineering Summit on test-driven development in the browser, walking through the fundamental concepts of TDD and then applying those to some specific use cases.

Although YUI Test is a part of YUI — and we use it for the unit tests we use on and ship with our library — the tool itself and the philosophy that underpins its use are both generic and can be used with equal relevance for testing code based on other JavaScript libraries. Unit testing for JavaScript remains a relatively obscure area for a lot of developers, and we're grateful to Nicholas for the clarity he brings to the issue in this talk.
