On what I hate about front-end web development and what tools and methods to use to ease the pain.
The talk is about front-end web development of a larger web-applications within a medium-sized development team. The emphasis will be on importance of coding style, naming conventions, keeping your codebase small and clean, code reviews, continuous measurements, code cleanup, (automated) visual testing, etc. Methods, tools and workflow will be mentioned. Also, an interesting novel approach towards continuous visual regression testing will be presented, currently with a working name WizEye - an automation tool that notifies you whenever your visual design gets broken.
