"Yeoman: Modern Workflows for Modern Webapps"
by Scott Davis
As a web developer, I'm always looking for tools that "script away" the boring part of the project -- building, scaffolding, testing, minifying, etc. Historically, this problem was solved by bespoke scripts that shipped with individual frameworks. But the "new framework / new workflow" grind gets old after the third or fourth time.
Enter Yeoman -- a collection of best-of-breed tools that streamline your workflow and -- wait for it -- can be reused across projects / frameworks. Yo scaffolds out new projects; Grunt builds and tests your project; Bower tackles dependency management for importing third-party libraries.
Come catch a glimpse of how a modern, reusable workflow can increase your developer velocity.
"Exploring the MEAN Stack: MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, NodeJS"
by Scott Davis
In the late 20th century, web developers talked about using the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl) for building professional websites with open-source software. 15 years later, we have a new acronym that's gaining popularity -- the MEAN stack (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, NodeJS).
In this talk, you'll learn how each one of these pieces of technology complement each other. But this is more than a simple change in letters -- the move from relational databases to NoSQL and from server-side MVC to client-side MVC represents a major shift in architecture and mental models.
Come see how these four independent pieces of technology work together to form the "new way" of doing web development.
