System Testing an API with NodeJS and Mocha

System Testing an API with NodeJS and Mocha

Do you test as much as you think you should? Or, even if you write tests, are you still confused about the different types of tests, how to structure and name your tests, or even what to test in the first place?

In this talk, Daniel Bostwick will walk through how he structures a NodeJS project for testing, integrates the Mocha and Chai testing frameworks, discuss the guidelines he uses for figuring out what to test, and show an examples of how to functionally test a backend API. You'll come away with a better understanding of BDD, learn how to functionally test any api, and be inspired to better test your own APIs.
