  • Practical testing for assorted languages

    by Jonas Nicklas

    You're building web applications and now you're writing tests as well. But do your tests really cover all parts of your application? What about that pile of JavaScript spaghetti that keeps on growing? In this session you will learn practical techniques to test a larger part of your Ruby code, as well as how to write testable JavaScript, and cover it with solid, flexible and useful unit tests. A solid, comprehensive test suite allows you to take charge of your codebase and refactor with confidence.

    by Comte Anthony Eden

    Web apps are hot, web apps with APIs are even hotter. These days popular sites are opening up more and more of their functionality via web APIs and you should too.

  • A/B Testing everything with Split

    by Andrew Nesbitt

    Just because the tests past doesn't mean that your users will actually like the change, you can test your features in front of real users using A/B testing. A/B testing is becoming an important tool on the web to test out new features on a subset of your users to find out if they fulfil their purpose and make your decisions based on data not opinions. Split is a rack based A/B testing framework, it works with Rails, Sinatra and any other rack based web framework. Find out why we needed another framework and how to use in Rails, Sinatra and Radiant and the best practises of A/B testing.
