Packt is pleased to announce the release of Jasmine JavaScript Testing, a practical guide to help readers become better JavaScript developers and create fully featured web applications. This book is available now in all the popular formats including Amazon, Kindle, e-pub and PDF.

About the Author :
Paulo Ragonha has a rich experience in Ruby and JavaScript, and has worked uniquely on web applications. He is a software engineer from Brazil who started his career with game development and Java. His last three projects were big JavaScript applications, developed and entirely driven by tests, and with amazing tooling support.

Javascript is a programming language that enables novice programmers to easily design webpages and add interactive features. Today, JavaScript has become a universal language available on a wide range of devices. As JavaScript applications become more complicated, testing and applying sustainable software engineering practices also become mandatory.

Jasmine JavaScript Testing helps readers not only to understand the power of test-driven development while creating a fully-featured web application, but also to leverage the power of frameworks such as BackboneJS and jQuery while maintaining code quality. Learning by example, web developers will be able to create a sustainable codebase with the help of Jasmine, understand the challenges of testing an application built on top of a framework, and prevent a application from suffering from dependency management hell. Through this concise book, readers will learn everything they need to know to become a real professional in the ever-demanding JavaScript universe.

Chapter 1: Getting Started with Jasmine
Chapter 2: Your First Spec
Chapter 3: Testing Frontend Code
