Video of the Week: The State of Front-​End Testing — Alicia Sedlock

Alicia SedlockContinuing this week’s broad theme of maintaining your code and making sure it does what it’s supposed to do — preferably neither more nor less, our Video of the Week also comes from Code 16.

Alicia Sedlock took us into the world of code testing: unit testing, acceptance testing, code linting, visual regression testing — the kind of work we know we should do but perhaps shy away from or skip over lightly sometimes, because it all seems too hard.

The State of Front-​End Testing pretty much dispels that myth, covering the breadth of testing strategies available and having the singular distinction of featuring a guest appearance from Alicia’s hedgehog, Mabel — perhaps the cutest guest at a Web Directions talk ever.


Got your ticket for 2017 yet?

For Code 17, we’re putting together a truly remarkable two-​day program of international and local speakers digging into front end engineering and development, coming to Melbourne (only) on 3–4 August. Come and join us!
