When developers think about unit testing web applications, we often focus on server-side code. We may think that testing client-side code (JavaScript, HTML, CSS) either can’t be done or is limited to isolated scenarios. But with the right tools and programming techniques, we can achieve the same rigorous test quality in our client code that we expect from our server code.

In this Web Conference at Penn State presentation, I demonstrated how to use tools like Mocha and PhantomJS to build rigorous client tests. I also discussed programming techniques to make client code more easily testable.

All sample code is available on GitHub.
