Testimonials from “Testing React”

Don’t just take my word about my courses - here’s what people who have watched my first video series, “Testing React applications with Enzyme and Jest”, had to say about it.

  • This is such a well done and concise series! I bought the bundle because I'd like to see moar videos done in this style. I particularly like the zoomed-in and stripped-out view of everything but what matters most.skube on YouTube
