Task runners are awesome!


It was only a matter of time before we covered task runners. They’re an integral part of our workflow here at Frontend NE and they truly are awesome.

Jonathan Steele is stepping up to the plate first with a basic overview of how a task runner can help you and what’s out there in task runner land. He’ll touch on the three biggest task runners: Grunt, Gulp, and the lesser-known Broccoli.

After the break, Alex Newman will take us through his Gulp workflow: What made him decide on Gulp? How does he use it? Why do I feel the need to add a third question? Find out the answer to the first two questions on July 2nd.

There’s a slight change in the line-up as Bede Gaming step up to sponsor pizzas this month. Don’t worry, they know what we like, the pizzas are still straight from the Herb Garden. Peacock Carter will be providing the usual ales, lagers and beers for you all with Campus North housing us all for the night. Oh, and the usual 15% discount at the Ware rooms still stands.

It should be a good one, we hope to see you all there!


Tickets are up for grabs here 11:00 on the 23rd of June. Make sure you're on the mailing list and you'll get a reminder email on the morning of the 23rd.
