Rapid Testing, Rapid Development

Development speed is all about the “”feedback loop”” between coding and testing the result. As any jQuery project grows more complex the developer’s feedback loop grows bigger. This video presents jQuery plugins and general tips that will help you reduce that feedback loop. jQuery plugins like Mockjax can speed up development by reducing dependencies on the backend and preventing conflicts with other developers. The video shows how you can use jQuery testing frameworks like QUnit and UITest to not only test your code but to help you quickly automate the tedious parts of your feedback loops. Additionally, regardless of whether or not you use jQuery, it will provide some general pointers on speeding up front end development.
