Simplifying Frontend Development with Gulp

The process of building, testing, and deploying modern web applications is becoming increasingly complex. Build processes frequently require running pre-processors, minifying and compressing content, and concatenation of scripts and images. Javascript unit testing and static code analysis become much more important as project scope increases. Managing all these tasks manually is a nightmare! In the last year, task runners like Grunt and Gulp have become increasingly popular for automating these processes. With these and other tools, you can greatly simplify your life as a web developer!
