The talk aims to help developers appreciate how it has become a whole lot easier to automate everyday tasks when building your next rich-client/single-page applications.


Using bower to manage your vendor packages and grunt to automate your oft-needed JavaScript tasks (compile, test, minify, and more), developers can now look forward to a more pleasurable experience especially when it comes to crafting JavaScript-based applications. Of course, it doesn't hurt to let yeoman's boiler-plates let your project get off to the right start.


An appreciation for agile-development practices and how automation as a philosophy is something that modern teams cannot live without.
