Typing the Test Suite

A brisk course on writing tests with Jest and TypeScript.

Typing the Test Suite

Udemy Coupon Offer Description

What is this?

A quick course for intermediate level developers looking to get started with testing using Jest and TypeScript.

The first section focuses on using Jest with JavaScript and a bit of TDD. The rest of the course uses TypeScript, Jest, with either Node.js or React. It's 2 hours long and full of content.

We move fast, break things, then write tests to make sure they don't break again. The technologies used are:

  • Jest (v26)

  • TypeScript (v4)

  • React.js (v17)

  • React Testing Library (v11)

Who is this for?

  • Developers with some JavaScript/TypeScript, Node.js and React experience who'd like to learn to write tests.

  • Highly motivated beginner who likes to jump in the deep end.

Required knowledge

I assume students have basic JavaScript knowledge.

The Node.js section assumes basic Node.js/Express knowledge, and the React section assumes some React knowledge. The testing concepts are largely unrelated to those specific frameworks, so as long as you have some programming experience, you should be fine.

2.0 Project: String Calculator

Put the skills learned in section one into practice by completing the String Calculator Kata.

  • 2.1 The First Test

  • 2.2 Handling Whitespace

  • 2.3 Throwing an Error

  • 2.4 Testing the Error

3.0 Matcher Madness

Do a deep dive into the various matchers Jest provides, from toBe and toEqual to the more exotic resolves and rejects matchers.

  • 3.1 toBe

  • 3.2 toEqual, not

  • 3.3 toHaveProperty

  • 6.3 Implementing the Matcher

  • 6.4 Typing the Matcher

  • 6.5 Setting up for Module Mocking

  • 6.6 Inline Mocks Review

  • 6.7 The Problem with Inline Mocks

  • 6.8 Manual Mocks

  • 6.9 Default Module Data

  • 6.10 Typing the Mock Module
