Presentation: Front End Tools for Modern Web Apps

Presentation Abstract:
Application development on the web has drastically evolved over the last 15 years. Today web applications are often expected to act like natives apps, are JavaScript heavy, and need to work across mobile, tablet and desktop. With the rise in these application expectations comes the rise in developer skill set expectations, and when ever developers need to do more you can expect some tooling to come into the mix.

This talk will talk a brief look at the history of application development on the web and where it seems to be going in the future. From there we will then take a look at 4 tools (npm, bower, grunt, yeoman) that focus on front end development needs of todays modern web apps.
