Ian Cooper - TDD, Where Did It All Go Wrong
Since Kent Beck wrote the book on TDD in 2002 a lot of words have been dedicated to the subject. But many of them propogated misunderstandings of Kent's original rules so that TDD practice bears little resemblance to Kent's original ideas. Key misunderstandings around what do I test, what is a unit test, and what is the 'public interface' have led to test suites that are brittle, hard to read, and do not support easy refactoring. In this talk we re-discover Kent's original proposition, discover where key misunderstandings occured and look at a better approach to TDD that supports sofware development instead of impeding it. Be prepared from some sacred cows to be slaughtered and fewer but better tests to be written,

JavaScript Combinators, the “Six” Edition - Reginald Braithwaite on Vimeo
JavaScript's first-class functions are the basis for nearly everything in the language, including methods and constructors. In this talk, we'll explore functions that consume and return functions, and see how they can be used to build expressive programs that hew closely to JavaScript's natural style, while taking advantage of ES6/ECMAScript 2015’s new features.
