Unit tests? Integration tests? Mocks? Stubs? Fakes? How does this apply to the web? Let’s look at all the ways you can test a web app and demo all the tools you’d use. We’ll live-code most tests to show you exactly what makes a good testing strategy. You’ll leave with a GitHub repo you can use to keep learning or fork and use in your own PWAs.

In this code-focused test, we enumerate the types of tests we’d do: unit, integration, end-to-end, API, and others. We then show how you’d write a test in each. In this talk I demo Mocha, Chai, Karma, Cypress, Supertest, and others. Attendees leave with the GitHub repo of both the app and all the tests to continue learning or fork and use in their own work.
