Christian Johansen

Originally a student in informatics, mathematics, and digital signal processing, Christian has spent his professional career specializing in web and front-end development with technologies such as JavaScript, CSS, and HTML using agile practices.

After working on several projects with less than trivial amounts of JavaScript, Christian has felt the pain of developing “the cowboy style”. In an attempt at improving code quality, confidence and the ability to modify and maintain code with greater ease he has spent a great deal of his time both at work and in his spare time over the last few years investigating unit testing and test driven development in JavaScript. Being a sworn TDD-er while developing in traditional server-side languages, the cowboy style JavaScript approach wasn’t cutting it anymore. The culmination of this passion is the book “Test-Driven JavaScript Development”, out on Addison-Wesley September 2010.
