Learn the power of test-driven development while creating a fully-featured web application
Understand the best practices for modularization and code organization while putting your application to scale
Leverage the power of frameworks such as BackboneJS and jQuery while maintaining the code quality
Automate everything from spec execution to build; leave repetition to the monkeys
You will learn how to create a sustainable codebase with the help of Jasmine. We will take a look at integrated testing (with a backend NodeJS server) and how you can speed this process up by faking AJAX requests. As you progress through the book, you will learn about the challenges of testing an application built on top of a framework and how you can prevent your application from suffering from dependency management hell. Also, since your applications need to get into production, you will learn about optimizing the code to reduce the number of requests the browser needs to make while loading your application.
