My name is Jonnie Spratley and I am on the Predix Platform team at GE Software, building a framework to power the Industrial Internet; I've started creating web applications with HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript around 2004 and have been hooked ever since, I've spent the past few years learning JavaScript frameworks and tools such as AngularJS, BackboneJS, Yo, Grunt, CoffeeScript, RequireJS, etc. and a variety of server-side languages. I have a passion for creating and using tools to streamline a developers productivity.

Design, implement, and deliver a successful modern web application project with three powerful tools in Yeoman workflow.

Key feature 1

Create modern web applications with Yeoman, to save time and money by automating a developers workload using yo – the scaffolding tool.

Key feature 2

Build, test and preview projects with Grunt, to ensure code is always ready for production using Grunt – the task management tool.

Key feature 3

Search, install and update 3rd party application libraries using Bower – the package management tool.


With so many modern tools for web developers to leverage, creating web applications ends up being a never ending struggle on deciding on which tools and workflows to use for that project, meet Yeoman - a workflow composed of three tools that enables developers to save time when creating modern web applications, with a module for just about any task and a code generator for just about any project, getting starting with projects using community best practices has never been easier.
