Upcoming developer webcast: Unit testing with the Palm Mojo SDK

Back in February, Christin Sepulveda, VP of Business Development for Pivotal Labs (one of the Pre launch partners), talked about webOS development. In the interview, he stated that even Mojo novices can "get productive quickly" in webOS, highlighting how Mojo used common tools and languages in JS and HTML already accessible to most developers.

To continue sharing his knowledge, Sepulveda has tapped O'Reilly to present a webcast next week, Tuesday July 14, on automated unit testing with the Palm Mojo SDK. Previously, Palm CTO Mitch Allen gave a webcast with O'Reilly on developing applications for webOS.

Unit tests are supported in webOS, and are useful in testing various program features using the compiler to compare output to reference values. This allows you to keep an eye on specific modules of the program which interface with the rest of the app, essentially building your app in smaller steps, and allowing you to change code without breaking other parts. The webcast will focus on Behavior/Test Driven Development (TDD/BDD) through Jasmine, a BDD framework for Javascript. A summary of the webcast is below:

In this webcast we'll:

  • introduce BDD & Jasmine
  • install Jasmine & add related code to the app to support BDD
  • discuss how to write a failing test first, then add functionality to make a test pass
  • develop a simple webOS application test first, with the Mojo SDK

Target Audience: Developers who are interested in developing webOS applications with the Mojo SDK.
