Customize Your Workflow.js

Development is hard, but it can be easier and more enjoyable with the right workflow and the right tools. Learn how to boost your productivity with your own workflow apps. This event will highlight use of several JavaScript technologies, including Node.js & node-webkit. 

OVERVIEW

We'll discuss the experience of creating a workflow tool called Fenix Web Server (http://fenixwebserver.com). Fenix is a beautifully simple desktop application that serves static websites and (optionally) shares sites publicly for peer review. The app overcomes several commonly overlooked workflow bottlenecks that occur in most web projects. 

DISCUSSION

The discussion will include:

• Review why time & resources were invested in workflow tooling.

• Overview of available technologies.

• Decisions that drove development & specific technology choices.

• Tech stack review: Node-Webkit, npm module choices, HTML5, CSS, installation utilities, & development patterns.

• Where to start building your own workflow tools. 

Attendees will leave this talk with an introspective view of their own workflow and tips to start building their own productivity-enhancing apps.
