Description

The Dojo Toolkit is organized into a large number of interrelated modules that are intended to be loaded into the client via the AMD (Asynchronous Module Definition) API. This leads, however, to non-trivial applications making hundreds of requests to get the required modules. To address this, the Dojo Toolkit contains a custom build tool that automates the minification and bundling of the modules for more efficient delivery to the client. This course breaks the build system down and gives a thorough overview of each piece of the build system, what its role is, and how the pieces work together.
