Each month, we pick a topic for round table discussion, or hacking session on a JavaScript technology.

Send us JavaScript topics or technologies that interests you.

This week, among other topics, we'll be talking about how to get started with projects, and using templates like Yeoman and Grunt's project scaffolding to set up new applications. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this approach? How does it integrate into a build process and unit testing frameworks? Is it only useful for certain kinds of development, or can everyone benefit? As an example, we'll take a look at the Seattle Times news app template, as well as any examples you want to bring.
