Typescript Unit Testing Training Course


TypeScript is an open source language for building enterprise Javascript applications. It is a strict superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain Javascript and brings static typing and object-oriented development to the language.

This instructor-led, live training introduces TypeScript’s unit testing features and frameworks. Participants get a chance to put theory to practice by constructing a collection of unit tests that can be run against real-life applications.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.

Course Customization Options

  • This course will focus on the frameworks that can be used to unit test a Javascript or Typescript application (Jasmine, Mocha, Jest, Chai, etc.).
  • UI frameworks such as React are optional and can be covered if desired.
