Objective

Accelerate front-end development! Reduce the design-develop-deploy period painlessly.

Description

Stuff I plan on covering -

  • Seamlessly use fixtures to mock data; you'll never have to wait for the "backend guys" to finish for your work to continue.
  • Dead simple templating + using pushstate/popstate; best practices, benefits, and some cool tricks.
  • Static package management - use dev, staging and production semantics to have your code be ready to be deployed with minimal effort.
  • DON'T PANIC - Write unit tests and save your ass.
  • Tools, frameworks, and books that can help.

Requirements

Javascript and MVC basics.
