Grunt 1.2 Grunt In Real Live - Examples with Excel and JavaScript Automation (video)

Development of modern web applications is extremely different from old-school component-based development. Basically the development of modern web apps needs a lot of automation - usually done in Grunt or Gulp. In the following short video I would like to show you some real life examples so that you may get started yourself. I recommend that you

  1. Watch the video
  2. The install the basics according to my previous blog
  3. And if you want to understand more about the components and their role, read this blog

And I'm really serious: I want you to start using grunt (or gulp), it's really, really crucial. So feel free to ask questions, I'll answer them all!

Love from Switzerland, 

PS: Links you may need: nodeJS, npm (no link, it's included in nodeJS), grunt or the alternative gulp, bower

Daniel Mettler learned programming with the bible translation computer of his parents, deep in the jungles of Indonesia. Since he was only 12 years old at that time and the BIOS only had a version of BASICA, that's what got him started. With 16 he went back to Switzerland and learned German and basic city-survival skills. Equipped with this know-how he founded 2sic internet solutions in 1999 which was focused on web solutions on the Microsoft platform. After a few self-developed CMSs 2sic switched to DNN in 2003 and has been one of the largest partners (17 employees, 700+ projects) in Europe. Daniel is also the chief architect behind the open source 2sxc, a strong promoter of standardization (boostrap, patterns, AngularJS, checklists, etc.) and loves to eat anything - dead or alive. His motto: if the natives eat it, it game.
