Jon Schlinkert, CEO of Sellside, will be speaking about build systems and Grunt.js. Jon's a successful entrepreneur that has been recently rocking out a bunch of great code around build systems.
Here are some of the advantages of Grunt.js that will be covered:
- DRY doesn't just apply to code, it applies to projects and teams too!
- Grunt keeps the entire team in sync, developers and designers.
- Results in DRYer cross-developer workflows.
- Improves communication, quality control and code consistency.
- Common use-cases and popular Grunt "plugins" include:
- Client-side templating
- Pre-processing, parsing and compiling
- Concatenating, minifying and copying
- Real-time hinting, linting and testing
- Continuous integration and automation for testing and deployments.
And last, some real-world examples and pointers for getting started.
