Dear CMPT students,

Have you ever been worried about the efficacy and functionality of your JavaScript code?
Maybe if you could rigorously test it using some handy framework, you'd feel better about deployments!

Then we have good news for you, because we are hosting a JavaScript Testing workshop this semester!
In this workshop, we will introduce you to unit/integration testing using frameworks such as Cypress and Jest.

The tentative date for this workshop is Thursday (October 19th), from 5:00PM - 6:00PM in TASC1 9204, although this issubject to change in lieu of the TSSU strike.

Please fill out this form to show your interest in this workshop: http://websurvey.sfu.ca/survey/455837014.
