Hello Fernando and thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!

I would like you to describe how your workflow is for making Web apps. I'm kinda new to javascript development and I haven't quite landed my workflow for that. As a Java developer I'm used to compiling code a lot. I find that TDD can help shorten the feedback loop and things like hot deploy on Jetty helps but there is still a lot of compilation and restarts going on. In Javascript this is easier since you only have to reload the page to restart the application.
Do you have other tips for making an effective development environment?

Hello Stian, thanks for the question.

Well, i use some yeoman generators with bower and grunt.js, this tools are my first option to build any type of application. With AngularJS all the code are compiled before rendered on browser.
if you are beginning to use JavaScript in Single Page Application now, I recommend that you use a code generator for Angular as example. Most of them are build with best practices, already include some testing library.
When starting with JavaScript is very easy to do wrong things, because JS is very flexible, pay attention on design patterns and best practices to write a consistent JavaScript code, this will save a lot of tome.
