Test first, then code, for more robust large-scale JavaScript applications

Experienced developers still struggle with the failure of large-scale JavaScript applications that collapse under their own weight. Reliable JavaScript provides the solution in the form of a test-driven workflow that produces robust applications that stand the test of time. This book uses unit tests to explain, demonstrate, and employ a wide variety of JavaScript patterns and architectures. As you follow along, you will become an expert in the test-driven development of JavaScript that is suitable for commercial software. If you are ready to bring a high level of software engineering to your JavaScript development, this book is for you.
