Prototype's co-maintainer Tobie Langel will talk about Unittesting JavaScript with Evidence at

Evidence is a new, framework-agnostic unit testing library which I developed out of necessity and frustration with the existing offering. Although it's heavily inspired by it's Ruby, Python and Java couterparts, Evidence is packed with niceness targeted at the specificities of the JavaScript language and its different environments.

Hopefully this introduction to Evidence will give you the motivation, tools and knowledge to start unit testing your JavaScript code if you are not doing so already.
