"Yeoman" and "Exploring the MEAN Stack"

"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.

    More great presentations. I'm going to start using Yeoman for all my JS-based projects from now on.

      Agreed! I was unzipping and making directories like a fool. What a time saver.

    I also missed this meetup. Is there way if you can share the presentation or recording about this meetup?

    Very disappointed I missed this. I got stuck in the airport and couldn't get back in time. Any chance that there was a recording?

    Was already pretty familiar with the Yeoman tools, but as usual Scott taught me stuff i didn't know

    Good stuff, this Yeoman. Nice to have front-end workflow solutions catching up.

    • Dave K.

      And in Scott's true fashion - he did a great job explaining it but more importantly WHY you'd want to use it
