Olivier Crameri - Sure, you can use JavaScript to program Robots. But how about having a Robot debug your JavaScript instead?

JSConf US 2013

29 May 2013

Olivier was presenting Bugbuster, a “software robot” to help with testing your application code.

Trying to fix the issue of writing code -> write more code to test your code

Essentially an API that gets out of the way - gives you the tools to test without having to write too much more code to get testing.

There’s a free beta available now at bugbuster.com - though obviously you’ll need to have your code at a publicly available URL so that it can access it.

Performs auto-discovery - you give it the starting point of your app and it discovers inputs, interactions, etc without being explicitly told.

API seems intuitive and not convoluted.


JSConf 2013

This is a quick summary of a talk I attended at JSConf 2013. You can see a list of all those I've summarized notes from here. There's also a General thoughts during JSConf 2013 post for all the non-talk bits and pieces.

There were 3 concurrent tracks at the conference, so only those I attended myself are summarized here. Other attendees have summarized some of the talks I didn't get to due to scheduling conflicts - you can find those at jlongster.com (James Long) and Toby Ho's github repo.
