  102. ### TDD In JavaScript
  103. [http://davidbeveridge.net/TDD-in-JavaScript/index.html](http://davidbeveridge.net/TDD-in-JavaScript/index.html)
  104. A three-part talk I gave Sept. 18, 2015 for [Radial Development
  105. Group](http://radialdevgroup.com/) on doing Test-Driven Development with
  106. JavaScript. The slides mostly cover TDD as a practice. This was followed by
  107. sections on doing TDD with Backbone.js and React.js, both with some live coding
  108. as an example.
  109. [TDD In JavaScript](http://davidbeveridge.net/TDD-in-JavaScript/index.html)
  110. [Behavior-Driven Development With
  111. Backbone.js](http://davidbeveridge.net/TDD-in-JavaScript/backbone-tdd.html)
  112. [Behavior-Driven Development With
  113. React.js](http://davidbeveridge.net/TDD-in-JavaScript/react-tdd.html)
  114. ### Is this thing on? Testing JavaScript, 1, 2, 3.
  115. [https://github.com/davidjbeveridge/TDD-is-this-thing-on](https://github.com/davidjbeveridge/TDD-is-this-thing-on)
  116. Presented May 27, 2015 at the Colorado Springs JavaScript Meetup, this was the
  117. first version of my talk on TDD with JavaScript. I covered TDD as a practice,
  118. and then did some live code demonstrating TDD on a sample project, which was a
  119. proof-of-concept for a script loader that only executes scripts matching a known
  120. hash.
  121. ### ActiveRecord Migrations
  122. [http://davidbeveridge.net/ActiveRecord-Migrations-Presentation](http://davidbeveridge.net/ActiveRecord-Migrations-Presentation)
  123. I originally presented this talk in 2012 to the Las Vegas Ruby Group. The group
  124. was making our way through "The Rails 3 Way", and I presented on ActiveRecord
  125. Migrations. Much of the information for this talk was taken from Chapter 6, and
  126. opined in person.
