Mark Percival will speak about Brunch:

As the list of client side frameworks grows, so does the need for a better development and deployment toolset. When we moved our front-end to Backbone we chose Brunch( for this task. Brunch handles the entire stack of JS/HTML5 development; it compiles coffee-script and mustache templates, handles modularizing your source, and packages/minifies the final output. It's not tied to any particular framework, can easily be extended with plugins, and is written entirely in Javascript on NodeJS. In this talk, we'll discuss what we learned from moving our development process to Brunch, and some of the sticking points along the way.
