Bower In Practice: A Package Manager for Web Developers

A session at Modern Web Conference

Thursday 7th August, 2014

12:00pm to 12:50pm

Bower is a really useful utility that can help save you time and energy as a web developer. It can be used to simplify not just downloading, but also updating most, if not all, of the libraries you need to use to build your web application...AND their dependencies.
This talk will cover:
* Getting started with Bower: how to install its own dependencies and get up-and-running with it from scratch.
* How to use it to download and update libraries for your application like jQuery, Backbone.js and Twitter Bootstrap.
* How to update those libraries when updates are available.
* And we'll even cover how to use Bower to create, publish and maintain your own package in the Bower registry, so its available for other developers to consume and use in their applications.
If you've ever been curious about Bower, or wondered if it was the right tool for you to use for your projects, you should have your answers by the end of this session.
