This will be a deep dive into Test-Driven Development against the SharePoint platform, including SharePoint Apps built using JavaScript and HTML5. SharePoint 2013 continues to support the "traditional" SharePoint development model and using TDD practices can be a challenge. But in addition in SharePoint 2013, we now have the "SharePoint App" development model with the emphasis on client-side development. Now we have a new set of technologies and development patterns. Prepare for a headlong dive into the brave new world (for us) of client-side JavaScript testing and development best-practices.

You will learn:

  • The motivation for TDD as part of Agile software development
  • Explore techniques for testing client-side code in SharePoint and Office 365 projects
  • TDD best practices
