The React Testing Library Bootcamp The Developer Guide


The basics of React


React testing library is the most popular tool to test your React application. It is extremely simple and intuitive to use but the outcomes are very powerful. It helps increase confidence in your React application and thus when it is shipped to production, your end-users will have a bug-free experience. This course will teach you everything you need to learn to start utilizing this popular library. So hope on in and enjoy the ride.What you will learn- The best practice of how to test with React Testing Library- The importance of testing- Testing component that make HTTP requests- Mocking requests with Mock Service Worker- Finding the right element in your component- Dealing with the context API in your testsEngaging contentYou don’t just code along in this course, but you also apply what you learn with engaging course assignments. After learning a concept, you will then be prompted to use what you learned in a coding challenge. These coding challenges will help you internalize React Testing Library in your mind. It is highly recommended to actually do the challenges rather than treating them as a code along.Instructor supportI will always do my best to answer any questions in the Q&A section of the course.
