My work has included integrating automated testing throughout the application, using Mocha, Chai and Sinon for unit tests and Selenium for E2E testing.
I enjoy integrating functional programming techniques into my code to create resilient programs that explicitly deal with failure conditions. I have utilised many of these in my daily work with TypeScript, but have also spent personal time learning the Elm language and architecture and applied some of the ideas found there.
