Frontend Workflows with Grunt and Lineman

Speaker: David Mosher

Location: Paladin Consulting, Inc

Grunt, the JavaScript Task Runner, is a tool that allows developers to build task-based workflows using JavaScript and Node.JS. Lineman is an abstraction that sits on top of Grunt with the goal of providing a set of sensible defaults that cover most developer needs in the context of creating rich-client web applications with JavaScript MV* frameworks like Backbone, Angular, and Ember. In this session you will learn how to build your own workflow using Grunt basics, and how Lineman produces developer happiness by building assets, mocking servers, and running tests on every file change.
