Learn JavaScript Unit Testing

Continue your learning by starting with Learn JavaScript Unit Testing

Tests are essential for programmers — web developers included! Errors in software are inevitable and costly, and having test coverage enables programmers to catch their own bugs before deploying their code. On top of that, learning to write good tests can lead to better documentation and more efficient development. In fact, some developers write tests before anything else, in a methodology known as test-driven development.
