Hey there this is Ray Villalobos. I'm a staff author on lynda.com and I want to welcome you to Web Project Workflows with Gulp.js, Git, and Browserify. In this course, I am going to show you how to generate a workflow that will make it easier to build websites with process languages like Sass, Compass, and Coffee Script. I'll also help you automate the process of creating versions of your sites that are optimized for development as well as production environments. I'll also show you how to track your product locally with Git and how to push and share your work with others on Git Hub.
Well learn how to use Browserify to automatically include libraries like jquery and Mustache JS. I'll also show you how to create different set ups so that code is easy to read while you're in development and as compressed as possible when you're ready to push things to a server. Once you set this up, you'll be able to use the same files and processes with all your projects. Now there's a lot to learn, but that's why you're here. So let's get started with web project work flows with Gulp.js, Git, and Browserify.

Q: When using the exercise files with the "git add" command on a PC, why do I receive warnings saying "LF will be replaced by CRLF"?
A: When running Unix files on a Windows workstation, the text formats are not exactly the same. Line Feeds (LFs) have to be converted to "Carriage Returns + Line Feeds.”
