Hallway Conversations - A Podcast by Developers for Developers

Episode 045 – Grunt, Gulp, and other Bodily Functions with Jon Mills

In this wildly-rambling episode, the Hallway Conversations team starts out exploring build-automation tools for JavaScript development like Gulp and Grunt and ends up taking a long detour through the rest of the node.js ecosystem, exploring the MEAN stack and other tools and frameworks along the way.

If you find the dizzying complexity of choices facing the average JavaScript developer to be off-putting, its probably not the case that this episode will settle your choices for you ūüôā

Instead, Jon takes us¬†through the¬†thought process that he relies upon¬†to try to¬†best survive the¬†nearly-daily deluge of changes that face the JavaScript software development community.¬† If you’re looking for a dive into the complexity of the choices, this is the episode for you!
