11:00am to 11:50am
Today's front end developers have more work to do than ever to create a functioning, responsive, fast, good-looking website. We have differing screen resolutions, browser support, network speeds and other considerations all buzzing around, jockeying for highest priority and attention during development. Fortunately for us, we also have more tools than ever before to help us begin, develop, test and refine those good-looking sites. Using those tools to automate the development process will help keep us sane, so let's do just that: automate all the front-end development things!
We'll cover a start-to-end workflow, along with options to cover other developer cases. Tools introduced and used include yeoman, grunt, emmet, sass (including scout, compass, livereload) alfred, bower, phantomcss (huddle), modern.ie, (with browsershots alternatives) and vagrant (virtualbox). We'll address responsive web design, review mobile-first development, media queries organization, basics of scripting, browser bookmarks, packaging sprites, and techniques for specific issues like using svg images with png fallbacks.
