About This Course

Tools are an important part of modern web development. There are tools for deployment, testing, minification, package management, linting, and building apps for production. These tools allow developers to achieve common development tasks in scalable, testable, safe ways.

The Developer Tools and Workflow Training Course builds a foundation for a variety of dev tools – specifically, Git, Sass, JSHint/JSLint, UglifyJS, Bower and Qunit – to manage web projects. It explores how to use these tools individually, then demonstrates how to use Gulp to tie them all together.

Javascript Developer, RetailMeNot
I had trouble understanding a certain concept, and told the instructor that I just didn't get it. While the class was busy with an exercise, he sat down with me, gave me material to read, and made sure I understood it before I moved on. I really appreciated that.
