Yeoman is a tool that supports modern development workflows. It accomplishes this by scaffolding out your web application using Bower for dependency/package management and Grunt as a task runner/build tool. The Yeoman scaffold also provides the necessary files to easily add your project to GIT source control.
Our presentation will begin conceptually walking through how a typical project starts small and begins to grow. Growing not only in the amount of code, but the number of dependencies and the number of collaborators. We’ll talk about the value that Yeoman brings to support this common workflow and why it should be added to your swiss army knife of web development tools. We’ll cover some of the basic functionally provided by GitHub and demonstrate how you can use GitHub as a cloud backup.
After we are all excited about why we should use Yeoman; we’ll get hands on and put it to use scaffolding up an Angular web application using an AngularJS Yeoman generator.
In order to facilitate the hands on portion of this presentation we’re asking everyone to come with their environments setup. This will allow us to focus on using the tools as opposed to configuring individual environments and also will make sure we aren’t at the mercy of the sites wifi.
Our presenter has put together some install videos that walk you through getting your environment setup:
