Building a Development Environment with Cory House
On today's episode, Charles Max Wood, AJ O'neal, Joe Eames, and Aimee Knight discuss Building a Development Environment with Cory House. Pluralsight recently added a course on this. Tune in to know more!
The Rationale Behind
Preparing for the Course
After Cory realized that there were more potential decisions to be made than what he recognized, he took time identifying them out. He went through the previous projects that he had and listed what pieces were in there. He did automated testing, linting, bundling, and minifying the code.
Knowing that the number of decisions is huge, he came up with 40 decisions that he deemed to be key for building a Java Script environment. He said that the best majority would likely agree with what's on the list but would never want to sit down writing a line of code and asking themselves with those questions.
Designed for Starters
The course is created to help beginner developers because it covers interesting ways in building a foundation in testing. It is designed in a way that it would bring awareness that there are options to choose from. Students will be introduced to a variety of ways on how to handle package managers, bundling, or minification.
