The New Developer Workflow

A session at Fronteers 2011

Friday 7th October, 2011

10:30am to 11:30am (AMT)

Working on websites is no longer a task that requires notepad and a browser to complete. The previous web developer revolution was about the semantics, but now we have real technologies that are being specced out and browsers in a race to implement. Your website is no longer a static page with headings and semantic markup.

With overwhelming array of choices, where do you begin?

In this talk I would like to go through what it takes to get a web development process right, including:

  • Web developer tools you should know, including using them to debug remote devices
  • Learning efficient CSS with server-side frameworks such as Sass or LESS (mainly Sass)
  • Progressively enhancing your site for supporting browsers from the most limited to the most powerful
  • Using a version control systel for managing your site (and why Git is awesome)
  • Vendor prefixes in your code — when are they appropriate to use?
  • Polyfills, when to use what (or even if it’s necessary)
  • Tools to help you along the way for all of these.
