Seamless client side JavaScript with jspm

A session at HalfStack 2016

Friday 18th November, 2016

12:20pm to 12:55pm (GMT)

ES2015 introduces mainly new features to JavaScript but the friction to getting set up to write ES2015 is currently still high - setting up your choice of transpiler, build tool and the rest of it is always time consuming and frustrating. In this talk I want to show you how jspm (http://jspm.io/) changes that. It's a single tool that takes care of managing your set up, installing every third party dependency you need and even bundling your application to production. I'll show you how to set up a seamless development workflow with jspm (including hot reloading) and how to use it to generate production bundles too.
