Tuesday, December 8

6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Atomic Object


Everybody secretly wants to be an evil genius, right? What do they all have in common? Minions. In this session, you will learn to build your own little development minion with the grunt.js automation framework. Learn the basics of what grunt is, how it works, and how to make it automate the boring programming tasks that waste your time. Be warned, there will be code involved, and perhaps a little world domination.
