Angular Testing with Jest

Class length: 2 days (customizable)

The value of automated testing is widely known; but executing on it can be difficult, tedious, and time-consuming. Many developers and organizations know there is benefit to be had but haven't fully rolled out automated testing.

In this class, we cover testing with the popular Jest framework. You will experience Jest used to test Node code, front-end Angular code, and possibly other use cases.

By default Jest is used most often with JavaScript; you'll see how to configure it to test TypeScript code as well.

Beyond just the mechanics, will cover techniques and trade-offs to use automated testing effectively and efficiently.

Oasis Digital developers have particular experience using these tools to produce the right tests, at the right time, quickly enough to produce value before other urgencies derail a testing effort. We work with your team in class and if needed afterward, to bring this value to your organization.

(This class is primarily about unit and functional/integration testing with Jest, Node, and Angular code. We also offer other classes featuring other frameworks and other types of testing.)

Who Should Attend?

  • Decision makers looking to expand the fluent use of unit testing in their teams.
  • Developers getting started with automated testing, or expanding to test increasingly complex systems.

Prerequisites / requirements

  • Experience developing software with JavaScript or TypeScript
  • Editor and other tools to work on JavaScript or TypeScript source code
  • A computer—this is a hands-on workshop
  • Ability to install software, including Node, NPM, and packages
  • Angular experience is very relevant, as the content includes testing of Angular constructs; but back-end developer are welcome.

Proven results

We have trained thousands of developers at hundreds of companies, including numerous global leaders.

Two ways to learn

1) Training for your team,

For corporate groups and other organizations, we offer live in-person or online instruction. These teams typically have advanced needs, so we provide customized, hands-on assistance.

Before each class, our instructors listen to your needs in depth and adjust the agenda. We can follow-up a class with consulting assistance, or combine multiple classes into a longer workshop week.

2) Live-instructor public classes,
coming soon

Want to attend as an individual or small group? We are creating public, open enrollment versions of many of our classes, including this one.

Unlike canned video training, live instructor online classes offer frequent opportunities for detailed Q&A discussion.

This class isn't quite ready yet, but follow us on social media (bottom of the page) or keep an eye on our website for announcements. We will show the schedule of upcoming open enrollment class dates prominently.

Training FAQs

Q: Is this taught "in person"?
A: We offer training both in-person and online via remote conferencing.
Q: How does the remote option work?
A: Much like an in-person class, it is conducted by our expert trainers, in real time. The trainers can answer questions, assist with trouble students are having, etc. We strive to offer as much of the in-person experience as possible, online.
Q: Are there open enrollment public classes?
A: We currently only offer an open-enrollment "public" class for our flagship Angular Boot Camp.
Q: Can the content be customized?
A: For private team classes, we *always* discuss your goals, the class contents, any specials areas for extra coverage, etc. in advance. We customize both the contents and length (number of days) to your needs.
Q: Can we schedule a private class any time?
A: Our classes are taught by developers who use the subject technologies in their daily work, so we don't assign "any" available developer/trainer to any particular class, but only to classes with a strong experience and knowledge match. Please contact us to arrange a date.
