You waste countless hours manually performing boring repetitive tasks. Tasks that break your flow, drain your energy, and crush your soul.
You don't want to "pull the lever" all day, wasting your talent on solved problems with existing automated solutions.
You don't have time scour the internet looking for solutions, tutorials, how-tos, videos and other bits and pieces of knowledge to cobble together half-baked solutions.
This is the time you've lost. Forever.
Pre-configured "seed" projects might help, but are full of crufty things you don't need, or even worse, provide a template for failure.
You're building mission critical, large-scale web applications with teams of developers. These aren't web pages, these are first-class applications. Not bolt on window dressing for Oracle, Rails, Django, .NET, or Node rendered server-side pages.
Your team is counting on you. Your clients are counting on you. It's your job to deliver. On-time and under-budget.
What if you had a resource that delivered a blueprint. A solid plan to automate and structure your application from the start.
If you could stop searching around the internet, hunting for specifics or trying to guess what the "standard" is.
Experience more joy of flow, solving interesting problems and doing meaningful work. You want to enjoy your job.
You'd like to jump straight to the answers, without wading through the sea of bad information, troubleshooting issues and wondering what is current.
What if you could just get to work, doing what you do best? Focusing on what is most important.
Your tools are Lego. You can start with a bucket of 10,000 random pieces, and build something awesome. There will be a lot of sifting, starts and restarts, but you're a master builder, and your spaceship will be so cool...
... or you start with a kit. Armed with a plan.
You're writing AngularJS applications. Real applications, solving mission-critical business problems.
There's no "one size fits all" solution when it comes to software tools. If we focus on modular tools that can be interchanged freely.
Your project will require more tools, altogether different tools, to solve the same problems in slightly different ways. This is what makes modularity awesome.
It's exactly what you want. Individual components that can be mixed and matched to solve specific problems and workflows.
With a solid foundation, your projects will be strong and flexible.
...but what ties all of these tools together?
This is where Grunt comes in. A task runner. A minion, eager to perform the most tedious tasks. The glue that binds your AngularJS application together.
A well-tuned Grunt build allows you to:
Grunt is dense, confusing, and foreign when first encountered. Maybe even a little scary.
It's a wonderful tool, worth learning and understanding.
Once Grunt automation is setup, and your project structure is in place, it "just works".
It's getting there that is the trick.
Automation delivers a serious return on investment. Like compound interest, the earlier you automate, the more value it will provide.
Essential AngularJS: Grunt Automation is your shortcut. Your ticket to the front of the line. The cruft-free guide for automating essential tasks
With this book, you'll learn:
All of the packages come with the book in .epub, .mobi, and .pdf formats. All packages will get updates for AngularJS 1.x.x.
Want to skip to the end? With packages that include the code, you'll be granted access to a private maintained git repository of the finished build. Like the book, this will be maintained and supported for the life of AngularJS 1.x.x.
You'll be able to file issues, get help, and have access to the updated code base at all times.
This is a drop-in enterprise-class "seed" project to provide the head start that you need.
It is "live published" and you have access to it as it is worked on. Expect updates until the content is complete.
I know you'll save a ton of time and get loads of value from the material covered in this book, but if not, let me know witin 30 days of purchasing and I'm happy to give you a refund.
