Frontend Tooling

Eliminate development pain and friction.

We'll introduce you to modern development processes and tools.

Workshop Description

Staying ahead of the frontend development curve is difficult, and it's easy to quickly feel out-of-date or left behind. We'll help you make the leap into Preprocessors of all kinds, plumb the depths of your favorite text editors, get up and running with source control (tldr; use it!), discover browser development tools, and explore the best ways to test your code across a range of browsers and devices. To top it all off, we’ll mix in all the other tasty essentials you’ll want to know about: the dreaded terminal, performance tuning, automated deployment, and much more!

Want a taste of the workshop?

Adam and Neil spent some time talking with Giovanni DiFeterici from the Breaking Development Conference about the workshop and our tooling workflow at Sparkbox. Listen to the podcast to get a little taste of the workshop content, and hear how we deal with tool adoption and "tooling fear".
