Using QUnit and SinonJS for JavaScript Testing

May 31, 2014


Basic was the first language I learned. Well, partially, in 8th grade. On Apple IIe at school and a Packard Bell 386 PC at home. A few years later, JavaScript came out and it became the first "modern" language I used. As an undergraduate physics major, I found it useful for quickly generating sample data or running some numerical approximations (simpler than Mathematica). Then I wrote a few web minor pages with DOM manipulation, before any of the modern frameworks had come out. I went to work, used it occasionally, but never had any excuses in work or home life to do more than dabble. The revolution was passing me by.
