New Speaking Engagement – Software Architect 2014

June 26, 2014

New Speaking Engagement – Software Architect 2014I’m happy to announce that I’ll return to London later this year to speak in the Software Architect 2014 conference.
In the conference I’ll have one JavaScript unit testing session and a SPA workshop which I’m delivering with Ido Flatow :

Quick Tour to Front-End Unit Testing Using Jasmine

Unit testing is an inseparable part of the development process, no matter which methodology you follow. But how will you test your JavaScript code? The answer is using JavaScript unit testing framework. Jasmine is a behavior-driven development (BDD) framework for testing JavaScript code. In this session, Gil will introduce Jasmine and you will learn the building blocks of writing your unit tests using the framework.

End-To-End SPA Development

Single Page Applications (SPAs) are web applications that are built using a single page, which acts as a shell to all the other web pages, with a rich JavaScript front-end. As opposed to traditional web applications, most of the SPA development is done on the front-end. The server, which once acted as a rendering engine, provides only a service layer to the SPA. This transition helps to create a more fluid user experience (UX), and turns out web applications to desktop-like smart clients.
Known web applications, such as Gmail and Google Docs, are implemented as SPAs, demonstrating that SPAs are the way to write your future web applications and not just a transient trend.
In this workshop, Gil and Ido will demonstrate the concepts of building an end-to-end SPA using an ASP.NET Web API back-end and Backbone.js in the front-end.

See you there!
