An Introduction to Gulp

Tim Erickson, Triplo LLC

For quite a while, I've been working with pre-configured gulp files and using the command "gulp watch" to complile my SASS. Recently, I've dug a little deeper to try and understand what Gulp is capable of, how I can customize my workflow with Gulp, and to better understand my alternatives.

This session is a beginners guide to Gulp. We'll start with what Gulp is, what all it is capable of, and whether or not you should use it? We'll take apart the configuration file used by Gulp, gulpfile.js, and show you how to customize it.

Our objective for this session is have participants take away an understanding of what Gulp is, how it can help them in their theming workflow, and how to customize it fully.
