about the book

Exploring JavaScript Testing is a collection of chapters from four excellent Manning books chosen by industry leader Elyse Kolker Gordon. In it, you’ll discover guidelines for applying unit testing fundamentals to JavaScript components, and you’ll gain firsthand experience testing browsers. You’ll also explore several strategies for creating and implementing unit tests and end-to-end tests.

After you’ve stepped through the basics, you’ll try out what you’ve learned with a multi-component React application. To wrap up, you’ll delve into testing isomorphic apps that can run on the server, in the browser, or both, and take a look at troubleshooting and debugging. When you’re finished, you’ll have a firm grasp on basic testing principles, techniques, and tools that make for reliable, user-friendly apps and happy users!
