Managing Front-End Libraries with WebBlocks 2 & Bower

Title

Managing Front-End Libraries with WebBlocks 2 & Bower

Presenter

Abstract

The landscape is rich with frameworks, libraries and tools that take advantage of every aspect of the modern web platform. Some frameworks try to cover the entire gamut of needs, but it's rare that a framework aligns perfectly with a website's needs; consequently, most libraries focus on doing only one thing and just doing it well, leading to an ecosystem of microframeworks where a website may include a slew of different tools, developed by different authors, with different dependencies. How does one manage this growing landscape?

During this talk, the lead developer of WebBlocks 2 will discuss how web developers can take advantage of Bower and WebBlocks 2 to fetch, configure and package web assets and their dependencies by adding a few simple files to any project.
