Save Over 40% with an Annual Subscription to Udemy Personal Plan.
Become job ready for advanced nodejs development by mastering testing from scratch, jest, cypress, mocha and more.

What you'll learn:
  • Get a very deep understanding of unit testing
  • Test real world node-js APIs with both unit testing & integration testing
  • Become a guru at writing end to end tests for all sorts of applications
  • Master mocking, stubbing, and common techniques of testing applications
  • Understand when and how to use feature tests, unit tests, and end to end tests.

When Istarted learning how to test, everything looked so easy.

Assert 2 + 2 = 4 ?

Sure, piece of cake. But when I was faced with a real world application, this was terrifying. I couldn't catch up at my job. It was depressing. Ididn't understand what mocking was. Neither did Iunderstand topics like stubbing or spying.

That's why I created this course. You are going to start from scratch, understanding exactly what a test is, what an assertion is, what errors are, and then we'll move on to more basic topics like:

  • Unit testing

  • Test runners

  • Assertion libraries

  • Test suites and organising tests

  • Running tests

To master these concepts, we'll write unit tests for real world functions, and understand exactly how testing feels when working on a real world project.

We'll have a full-stack real-worldadvancedjavascriptapplication, build with the latest features of Javascript, and we'll clone this project, and write tests for it from scratch.

There will be plenty of assignments and code reviews, to make sure you understand exactly what isbeing thought in the course.

After our feet are wet , and we can write basic tests, and after solving multiple exercises, we'll move on to a more real world approach, covering advanced topics like:

  • Feature / integration testing

  • Mocking

  • Spying & stubbing

  • Asynchronous tests

  • Database testing

  • End to end testing

We'll then dive into TEST DRIVEN JAVASCRIPT DEVELOPMENT,understanding the RED, GREEN, REFACTOR TESTING CYCLE,and how to apply this into our projects to build more robust and bug free applications.

So what are you waiting for ?Are you ready to become an advanced javascript engineer?Enrol now and let's get started !
