AIM5 Applications, Integration and Mobile

Location: Pavilion Ballroom East

MONDAY, 3:00 - 3:45 p.m.

Yo, Grunt and Bower are new ways to help you streamline you site/app building process. Grunt is a task manager that can do lots of cool things like compile you SASS into CSS, move files around, compress files etc. Yeoman is a site/app generator. Do you want the scaffolding for a new angular app? Just type a few easy commands and it is generated. Bower is a dependency manager that maintains a list of libraries needed for your site. Need the latest JQuery? JQuery UI or Angular? Just add it to a json file and you will always have the latest.
