Hate testing, but love the feeling of a bug free application? Then this is the talk for you! In under 30 minutes we’re going to change the way you view testing.

JavaScript application testing has a well-earned reputation for being a giant pain in the ass. Existing solutions suffer from complex setup, difficult APIs, lack of automation, or expensive licensing fees. But there’s no denying that solid testing is the key to a better quality, more maintainable app.

And that’s where FuncUnit comes in. FuncUnit is a free, open source JavaScript web application testing framework that’s powered by jQuery, Selenium, QUnit, and Envjs. It provides:

  • Functional testing. Simulates clicks, keypresses, and drags to test event handling and UI changes.
  • Easy syntax. It’s jQuery and QUnit syntax, natural for any jQuery developer.
  • Run with just a browser. Developers run tests as they work to prevent regressions.
  • Run the same test automated. QA can run nightly scripts that test every supported browser
  • Simple set up. All you need is a browser.

Come join us as we cover these features and more in a live demo. We'll walk through setting up, writing, and running tests on a complex, AJAX heavy jQuery application. Come learn how to be a master of application testing!
