Optimizing Your JS Workflow

This month we are going learn some tips on how you can utilize modules and optimize your JS workflow.

This meetup will be split into two parts. The first half-hour will be about a beginner focussed topic and in the second part we will step it up a notch and do something more advanced. This time:

1) Modules & Build Tools

• AMD + RequireJS

• Component + Makefiles

• Browserify

• Grunt

• Gulp

2) Using Gulp + Browserify

• Setting up Gulp with Browserify to load our modules into Instaface

We will live-stream both sessions on our Google+ account.

    The creator of browserify has been writing a handbook for browserify. There's a lot of good information inside about best practices, philosophy and testing, with more and more content being added daily it seems.

    Great talk. So much stuff happening in JS. It can be daunting all of the options to choose from, but it's exciting how many different libraries and capabilities are coming forward! Thanks for the informative evening.

    I really enjoyed the talk on the various module loaders and package managers. The JS landscape changes fast and it's always nice to get a good sense of what's out there and is worth using in a short period of time.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
