James Ward is coming to town, and this time he'll talk about Play 2.3 and sbt-web.

Introducing sbt-web - A Node & WebJar Compatible Asset Pipeline for the Typesafe Platform

sbt-web is a new web asset pipeline for Play Framework and other sbt-based frameworks. It can pull dependencies from both Node and WebJars. The pipeline covers all of the phases of client-side development, including: linting, compiling (CoffeeScript, LESS, etc), minification, concatenation, fingerprinting, and gzipping. This session will give you an introduction to sbt-web and show you how to get started using it.

This is a first part of the two-talk series. In the second talk on 4/11 James will show sbt-web in action, live-coding a Play app!
