The quality of every jQuery plugin reflects on the entire community. As responsible software craftsmen it is critical that we certify our work as best we can. A very effective way to do that is by test driving the development of your plugin and maintaining a comprehensive test suite covering every feature.
In this talk, I explain the process of test driven development and how it can be applied to your new and existing projects. I will demonstrate how to use modern tools to test your plugins from the outside in and significantly improve the quality of the code you write. I will walk you step by step from the idea for a feature all the way through its testing and implementation.
Following this methodology will give you confidence in your releases and in all future changes to your code. An added bonus is that these concepts extend beyond your jQuery development and into every aspect of the applications you write, regardless of the platform!
