There are many frameworks and libraries that help you to build web applications...but that's not enough. Other problems arise when you try to combine everything into a single application. Do you want to spend your time writing new code or assembling your app?
Friction matters in web development. Brunch.io is the grease that makes creating complex web applications easier. It is an automatic "assembler" for HTML5 applications, allowing you to create projects that combine different languages, template systems and other libraries into your app. With Brunch.io, you'll spend less time managing your application and more time developing it.
In this session, we'll learn about the challenges you'll encounter in trying to build a web application from scratch. We'll discuss solutions to these problems and then see how Brunch.io makes this process even easier. We'll learn about Brunch plugins, skeletons and generators that help you create applications using a variety of languages (CoffeeScript, Roy), template libraries (Handlebars, Mustache, Eco) and CSS compilers (LESS, Sass). And finally we'll examine a real Brunch application to see how everything works together and how easy it is to add new features.
