Back from GeeCON Poland 2014

Main

I just get back from GeeCON that was held in Krakow, Poland 14-16 May 2014. The conference organization was fantastic and there were a lot of attendees in the conference sessions. IMO, GeeCON is really the biggest Java Conferences in the Central-Eastern Europe as it had 1100+ attendees.

I had the chance to present “Jasmine Automated Tests for JavaScript” in 15 May, the session had many attendees and I was really amazed by the energy, enthusiasm, and responsiveness of the attendees during the session.

The session went great and I was glad to give a free copy of my JavaScript Unit Testing book to one of the attendees who answered a JavaScript quiz at the end of my session.

Finally, I would like to thank all the organizers of this conference, especially Adrian Nowak (@adrno), Adam Dudczak (@maneo), Marcin Gadamer (@marcingadamer), and certainly all of the wonderful guys behind this conference.

[OT] Krakow is a wonderful modern city, if you plan to go there then do not miss visiting Ojców Garden Krakow, Wawel Royal Castle, and generally Old Krakow city. I attached below some of the photos below:

What the JavaScript Unit Testing book covers?


The JavaScript Unit Testing book is a comprehensive practical guide that illustrates in details how to efficiently perform and automate JavaScript testing for web applications using the most popular JavaScript unit testing frameworks.

The book starts by explaining the concept of JavaScript unit testing and by exploring the bits of an interactive Ajax web application. Throughout the book chapters, the JavaScript part of the web application is tested using popular JavaScript unit testing frameworks (Jasmine, YUITest, QUnit, and JsTestDriver). The book illustrates how to generate JavaScript test reports, how to automate running the tests in the build and the continuous integration environments, and how to make all of the mentioned JavaScript unit testing frameworks work together in order to test the web applications in the most efficient way.

After reading this book, you will learn everything you need to know in order to make efficient JavaScript tests for the web applications. You will learn how to generate test and code coverage reports, how to automate running the JavaScript tests, and the bits of the JavaScript testing by following the book practical hands-on detailed examples.

You can order the book from: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1782160620/.

Finally, I would like to thank all of the persons that worked with me in order to produce this book (Acquisition Editor, Commissioning Editors, Technical Editors, Copy Editors, Project Coordinator, Proofreaders, Graphics Designers, Production Coordinator) and certainly the technical reviewer of this book Allan Lykke Christensen.
