This workshop walks you through the basics and some best practices when it comes to testing your React projects! We'll dive into an existing application and implement a new feature, testing our assumptions as we go. We'll also discuss why it's best to write tests early and often, and the hardships/pitfalls you can run into when writing tests for an existing (untested) project.

Pre-requisites: Attendees should be familiar with JavaScript and React. Webpack/general testing knowledge is helpful, but not required.

Anna is an artist and web developer who - after working in graphic design, event planning, and education - changed careers and became a Software Engineer in early 2015. She currently works for General Assembly, an educational company building software with an aim to change the way adults learn. Her hobbies include attending game jams, making pixel art, karaoke, and watching nature documentaries with her dog.
