You'll start by exploring how other industries use a variety of tests and the value it provides. You'll then start writing your very own tests, using the Jasmine testing framework. Finally, you'll start developing your very own address book application using the red-green-refactor workflow and explore a variety of scenarios including testing asynchronous functions.Why Take This Course?
As your applications become more complex and you continue adding new features, you need to verify your additions haven't introduced bugs to your existing functionality. Automated testing provides this functionality and allows you to focus on.Prerequisites and Requirements

The original developer of this application clearly saw the value in testing, they’ve already included Jasmine and even started writing their first test suite! Unfortunately, they decided to move on to start their own company and we’re now left with an application with an incomplete test suite. That’s where you come in. Syllabus Overview
This course consists of 2 lessons. In the first lesson, you'll discover the importance of testing and reconsider its purpose and the value it provides. In the second lesson, you'll explore the Jasmine testing framework write your own test suites while developing an address book application.Lesson 1: Rethinking Testing
From education to aerospace, tests provide invaluable feedback to those that analyze the results. In this lesson, you'll learn all about the importance of testing, how to identify the expectations a test is attempting to validate and how to write expectations in code.
