Build Right: Frontend Tooling

A session at ConvergeSE 2014

Thursday 1st May, 2014

10:00am to 5:00pm (EST)

The Build Right: Frontend Tooling workshop will help you eliminate development pain and friction by introducing you to modern development processes and tools. Staying ahead of the curve is difficult, and it's easy to quickly feel out-of-date or left behind.

We'll help you make the leap into Preprocessors of all kinds, plumb the depths of your favorite text editors, get you up-and-running with source control (tldr; use it!), discover browser development tools, and explore the best ways to test your code across a range of browsers and devices. To top it all off, we’ll mix in all the other tasty essentials you’ll want to know about: the dreaded terminal, performance tuning, automated deployment, and much more!

We want you to walk away from our workshop feeling empowered to work faster, cleaner, and with more confidence in your frontend development role. We promise that you'll leave the workshop with your head overflowing with alternatives that challenge the way you're writing code today and that you'll be ready to hit the ground running tomorrow. Workshop topics include:

Source control
Design tools
Browser / Dev tools
Local Servers
Automated Deployment
Browser/Device Testing
