At the core of being able to write clean code that you can depend on is a thorough knowledge of unit testing. In Test-driven Development Using React, you will learn how to use the TDD cycle to create real-world user interfaces with the popular JavaScript library that was created by Facebook, React. First, you will discover how to use TDD to write JavaScript functions. Next, you will explore the syntax and ideas behind React. Finally, you will learn how to combine React and TDD by using the Jest testing framework. When you are finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of both Test-driven Development and React that will help you as you move forward with using TDD in any programming language as well as with learning advanced React and React Native development.
