    I’d be interested in this – Grunt is the one of the things on the ‘To Learn’ list, since it’s starting to become a necessity for some frameworks!

  2. Brian says:

    New to Grunt, but the possibility of programatically deploying projects would be of interest to me.

  3. Daniel says:

    I’ve heard a lot about Grunt and its something I want to look into more. This looks like it will be a good guide for using it.

  4. Mike says:

    Thanks for offering this giveaway. Among other items, I’d be very interested in learning more about using Grunt to deploy assets to S3.

  5. Jim Priest says:

    Just started tinkering with Grunt and want to explore how I could could replace Ant possibly for my deployments.

  6. Dinesh says:

    I am using Grunt in my current project and would be interested to explore more.

  7. Paul Feakins says:

    Anything that can help automate stuff has got to be worth using. I’d be interested in a copy!

  8. matt says:

    Hi Anuj,

    I’ve been using Grunt the past 6 months or so daily for js/css compression and linting however as a good old friend of mine, I’ll buy your book anyway 🙂

    hope all is well

  9. matt says:

    oh wait, you didn’t write it ?

  10. Hobbes says:

    I’m most interested in learning about using Grunt to handle optimizing build code.

  11. danakowalski says:

    I’ve been wanting to get into Grunt for a bit now, seems like a good resource to start with.

  12. Anuj Gautam says:


    I am exploring Grunt and will be implementing in my next upcoming projects. This book will be of a great help 🙂

  13. Gor says:

    Just what I’ve been looking for. Grant me some Grunt knowledge pretty please!

  14. Ron says:

    Yes. Please.

  15. Nick says:

    I’ve just started using Grunt but it’s hard to find a lot of good “best practices” examples out there. Right now I’m mostly just linting and watching files, but would like to move on to more advanced concepts!

  16. chrissi says:

    I basically just want to understand what grunt is for, why you would use it, and how I can use it in my projects. I want to be able to follow a few examples and read some instructional material to understand how I can use it effectively.

    I’ve used it before but it’s always part of doing one particular other thing… putting it all together would be great.

  17. Jamie says:

    I’m new to node and was at first overwhelmed by all of the pieces needing pulled together and then run. I’ve started using grunt which makes things way easier but I really have no idea what it’s really doing and what else it could be doing for me.

  18. Mircea says:

    Here please

  19. Anthony says:

    I would like to convince my team to use a task runner to make our life easier ! Also I have a very basic knowledge of Grunt and would like to unlock its true potential !

  20. Adrian Miu says:

    Very interested in using Grunt for Continuous Integration. Since you can run Grunt tasks from the command line you can also execute them in Jenkins (lets say) but running them in a way that breaks the build when you want is not that easy.

  21. Nico says:

    Im very interesed to this book

  22. Tim says:

    I think what interests me the most about Grunt is being able to automate tasks that are run when I boot up my server. Things like asset compilation and minification, and more. Another topic I am interested in learning about is Continuous Integration. I am currently using a bash script to manage deployments, and I would rather do that using Grunt or another type of task runner.

  23. Paul says:

    I plan to use grunt to automate my developer workflow, but need to learn much more about it.

  24. Philip says:

    Grunt i the way forward in web development, it powers your way and makes development easy to manage

  25. Dan says:

    Grunt is the new hotness for deployment from what I can see and I am looking forward to learning more and using this in my daily work.

  26. Derek R. says:

    I have been meaning to start learning to use grunt for a while now. This would help kick that off.

  27. Interesting in Grunt plugins
