In this installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart FINALLY lets us start learning Test Driven development, or TDD. He shows us how to use a free and open source tool called QUnit, made by the fine developers of jQuery, to analyze our test code. It’s something I’ve been itching to learn more about, ever since listener Jill tipped us off to the concept. It’s a really fun episode where everything kind of comes together. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. As always, Bart’s excellent written tutorial for the episode can be found at bartbusschots.ie/….

In this week’s installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart teaches us about how to change the look of HTML buttons using their CSS attributes. It’s great fun, but I have to confess we don’t actually get to the new stuff till over an hour into the show! We had so much fun going through the homework from last time that we lost track of time. I was so excited because I’d worked really hard on my homework this time and was able to actually conquer the first two parts (with some help from my friends) but I did struggle a bit with the third piece where I had to assemble them together. Anyway, we decided it’s ok if you skip ahead to the CSS parts if you like; it starts at an hour and six minutes in.

On this week’s continuing series Programming By Stealth, Bart introduces us to HTML forms in order to take user input. It’s a pretty basic installment so not as head bendy as they have been lately. He also gives us some more repetitive homework to get more practice creating and using prototypes and accessor methods. The full written tutorial can be found at bartbusschots.ie/….
