The modern web is a thing of beauty, but it is a complex beauty. Modern workflows require package management, build steps, automatic testing via continuous integration, cloud hosting platforms, and production parity local development options. This session will break down the needs of the modern developer and talk about the tooling required to meet those needs and create web magic.
The modern web is a thing of beauty. Mature web frameworks allow developers to build complex functionality (relatively) easily. Browser support is the best it has ever been. Cloud based development & hosting platforms allows small teams to operate in ways previously only reserved for large projects. Development tooling leveraging Docker makes local development extremely powerful. And we are just getting started!
But with this beauty comes increase complexity for the modern developer. Package management solutions like NPM and Composer are now required. Build steps for JS + CSS compilation are standard in most large development projects. Automatic testing frameworks can be leveraged in many different ways. Add to that Continuous Integration solutions, cloud hosting platforms with external APIs, and configurable containerized local development solutions and there is a LOT going on in modern web development.
To bring this all together a modern workflow is required! This session will break down the needs of the modern developer and talk about the tooling required to meet those needs and create web magic.
