Today’s front end developer’s have an endless buffet of JavaScript frameworks and development tools that supposedly allow you to do your job better and be more efficient. This talk wades through all the noise to discuss best practices for client-side user agent detection, code compression, GZIP, minification and build processes. We’ll review frameworks like grunt.js, HTML5boilerplate, and many others to see how these new techniques might fit into our current build processes with tools like maven or ant.
