This talk, as delivered at DevReach in Sofia, Bulgaria, is the culmination of years of practicing to write beautiful JavaScript tests that provide just the right feedback to prompt me to take actions which dramatically improve the design of my code. As a result of my singular focus, my approach is very different than what you’d find searching for a tutorial or a README about JavaScript testing, TDD, or unit testing in general.

It would make my day if you’d watch it with an open mind and thoughtfully consider what about the approach I’ve arrived at might prove valuable in your own practice.

Here are the slides, hosted on SpeakerDeck:

Finally, you might have noticed that the slide deck was written in Markdown (as a wink to the fact that the talk was about advice that you wouldn’t find in a README). So, naturally, I’ve decided to post the entire talk’s text as a README to Github.
