Node.js is experiencing huge growth by slipping into organizations that traditionally have utilized other technologies in a rather sneaky way... through their front-end build process. For this former Rubyist, the overall effect of this trend is positive. But many developers haven't been exposed to the power and speed increases this change brings.

Node.js, Gulp, and the plugin ecosystem fostered by both projects have redefined front-end development, turning a once difficult task of compiling, linting, and versioning your templates and assets into several lines of simple configuration that you can use across multiple projects.

In this session, attendees will learn the basics of Node streams, Gulp, and how to properly assemble their front-end build stack; leaving with the knowledge to use it in their daily workflow.
