TDD and BDD With The MEAN Stack: Introduction

As the MEAN stack is growing in adoption, a variety of testing strategies have sprouted up on the interwebs. As I have started to dig deeper into automated testing strategies for both sides of the MEAN stack, I have found it difficult to find advice or material on how to setup an environment to support the mockist style of test-driving the implementation. Many articles offer some light recommendations, but are typically more classicist-oriented. I’d like to help fill the gap by outlining a tooling strategy which I believe enables the following: - Automation - Mockist unit testing - BDD/ATDD testing - End-To-End system testing

I have to say I can understand this. I also only recently have been looking more into node.js

And I really like its simplicity. That is great and it seems it makes it very easy to adopt and maintain.

Why JavaScript Will Become The Dominant Programming Language Of The Enterprise

Why JavaScript Will Become The Dominant Programming Language Of The Enterprise | startup-tech | Scoop.it

There is no denying that since its inception in the mid 90’s, JavaScript has become one of the most popular Web development languages. In September 2012, industry analyst firm, RedMonk, showed it as the top language. Much of this is due to its ability to deliver rich, dynamic web content, its relatively lightweight and its high ease of use.

Functional Refactoring in JavaScript

Functional Refactoring in JavaScript | startup-tech | Scoop.it
When discussing functional programming we often talk about the machinery, and not the core principles. Functional programming is not about monads, monoids, or zippers. It is primarily about writing programs by composing generic reusable functions. This article is about applying functional thinking when refactoring JavaScript code.

Code Coverage of Jasmine Tests using Istanbul and Karma

Code Coverage of Jasmine Tests using Istanbul and Karma | startup-tech | Scoop.it
For modern web application development, having dozens of unit tests is not enough anymore. The actual code coverage of those tests would reveal if the application is thoroughly stressed or not. For tests written using the famous Jasmine test library, an easy way to have the coverage report is viaIstanbul and Karma. Behind the scene, Karma is using Istanbul, a comprehensive JavaScript code coverage tool (read also my previous blog post on JavaScript Code Coverage with Istanbul). Istanbul parses the source file, in this example sqrt.js, using Esprima and then adds some extra instrumentation which will be used to gather the execution statistics.

Avoiding The Quirks: Lessons From A JavaScript Code Review

Avoiding The Quirks: Lessons From A JavaScript Code Review | startup-tech | Scoop.it
Code reviews go hand-in-hand with maintaining strong coding standards. That said, standards don't usually prevent logical errors or misunderstandings about the quirks of a programming language. Even the most experienced developers can make these kinds of mistakes and code reviews can greatly assist with catching them. Often the most challenging part of code reviews is actually finding an experienced developer you trust to complete the review and of course, learning to take on-board criticism of your code. The first reaction most of us have to criticism is to defend ourselves (or in this case, our code) and possibly lash back. While criticism can be slightly demoralizing, think of it as a learning experience that can spur us to do better and improve ourselves because in many cases, once we've calmed down, it actually does. It can also be useful to remember that no one is compelled to provide feedback on your work and that if the comments are in fact constructive, you should be grateful for the time spent on the input (regardless of whether you choose to use it or not).

A Look Into How Parameters Are Passed In JavaScript

A Look Into How Parameters Are Passed In JavaScript | startup-tech | Scoop.it
I recently came across a question on StackOverflow about how JavaScript handles parameters, if they are passed by value or by reference. There seemed to be a lot of confusion and misinformation about what is actually happening behind the scenes. TLDR; All arguments are passed by value in JavaScript, however, when dealing with non-primitive datatypes like objects and arrays a variable is created that points to the location of the object memory that is then is passed into the function. This means that changes to the variable inside the function will affect the original object's values. Once the argument is reassigned (e.g. arg = {} ) the variable now has the location of the new object in it so the original variable is no longer changed when the value changes.

jTypes - emulate classical inheritance where objects are defined by classes

jTypes - emulate classical inheritance where objects are defined by classes | startup-tech | Scoop.it
“ jTypes is the most comprehensive and robust JavaScript library for overcoming differential inheritance with prototype-based objects.” jTypes will provide you with the ability to develop robust, modular, and scalable application libraries in JavaScript using encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. What exactly does that mean? You know all those keywords from languages such as C++ or C# that you started missing quite badly after you transitioned to JavaScript? You know what we're talking about; all those modifiers of classical inheritance such as virtual, abstract, and override or private, protected, and public that gave you so much more control and freedom with your libraries. Well jTypes lets you use those keywords in JavaScript, so you can develop extremely powerful and robust web applications using the principals of classical inheritance.
