Date: 26th June 2019

Time: 18:30 - 20:30

This month is a testing extravaganza with talks from Colin Wren talking about testing Kafka and Daniel Irvine talking about doing test driven development with React.

We'll also be giving away 2 codes for a year subscription for a Jetbrains toolbox product of your choice!


Testing Kafka with Jest and NodeJS

Speaker: Colin Wren Twitter: @colinwren Pronouns: He/Him

Having spent the last 6 months testing a Kafka based application, Colin gives a short introduction to what Kafka is, how it’s used and shares his experience of writing an end-to-end test framework using Jest and NodeJS.

Testing React with the 'act' function

Speaker: Daniel Irvine Twitter: @d_ir Pronouns: He/Him

React 16.8 introduced a new 'act' function that helps with testing side effects and asynchronous effects in React components. However, that first release only supported some use cases. The upcoming React 16.9 release, currently available as an alpha release, includes an updated version of 'act' that covers more use cases. In this talk I'll explore how you can use it to improve your test suites.
