Aug 27 - Testing in JavaScript land and the Azure Puzzle

This month we've got two talks. One on JavaScript and the other on Azure (but I figured you guessed that from the title of this post!)

Testing in JavaScript Land - Gareth Stokes (@garrydanger)

Battle scars and lessons learned when testing JavaScript with Jasmine, PhantomJS and Casper, all of it being held together with Grunt. What more could you want?!

Update: Slides and code available here:

Windows Azure Aint What It Used To Be - Justin King (@zerohash))

With all the changes to Azure over the past 12 months, the way you build apps with it has certainly changed. What do you need to know if you're trying to puzzle out how to effectively build an app on Azure and avoid reinventing the wheel? This talk may just tell you :-)

If either of those interest you then go ahead and get yourself a free ticket for the night from the eventbrite page and we'll see you on the night. Oh, don't forget to tell a friend or colleague as well!
