Learn about Grunt - The JavaScript Task Runner

Why use a task runner?
In one word: automation. The less work you have to do when performing repetitive tasks like minification, compilation, unit testing, linting, etc, the easier your job becomes. After you've configured it, a task runner can do most of that mundane work for you—and your team—with basically zero effort.

    Steven Upritchard did an excellent job of both explaining Grunt and showing how Astonish uses it as an important part of their development workflow. Well done !

    For anyone else that spent 20 minutes walking around and around a dark church looking for the place, I finally figured out the issue. First, I'm new to the area. Second, apparently the Google Maps app uses different coordinates than the in-browser Google Maps. Google Maps app insisted 39 Pike was a church. After giving up and grabbing a slice at Felinis, I tried the address in google maps on the mobile browser and voila, dead on at Vanity. Next time I'll know! -Dave

    REMEMBER: If the valet people give you a hard time about parking your car in the lot, just tell them you're NOT going to Vanity (the bar beneath our office) and that you're here for an event at the Swipely office!

    Hi all, reminders for getting here:

    Bing (­ ) and Google (­ ) both have the correct street info now but just in case you get lost - we're not the church!!

    We have a small parking lot adjacent to the building which we share with Vanity Bar in the evenings. There may be valet guys manning the lot but if you say you're visiting Swipely they should simply let you park yourself. We'll let them know to expect folks. The street is also free parking although it's usually pretty full.

    Our entrance is on the end of the building with the large black wooden doors - we'll try to leave them unlocked for you, else just bang furiously. Inside, up the stairs and the first door on the left is Swipely!

    Pizza should arrive at 6:45pm and we have plenty of soda/water/beer/snacks.

    Text or call Barnaby if you have any trouble:[masked]
