Working on websites regularly leaves you needing certain things automated from time to time. Scripts minified and concatenated, Scss compiled autoprefixed and minified, code linted and built for production.
After several months lamenting over the sad state of our build system I was finally able to take some time and get a basic Gulpfile set up. In that short amount of time I was able to completely remove our dependency on Compass, have all of our scripts concatenated, tested and minified into one master file and set up a watch task to recompile everything whenever a change is detected.
My name is Trevor Atlas – I'm a Software Developer and Designer based in Washington, DC
For the past 5 years, I've worked at agencies and startups building functional and intuitive interfaces, flexible and robust services and powerful mobile applications.
When I'm not building user interfaces in React, most of my day-to-day work involves microservices in AWS using Terraform to scaffold infrastructure, Typescript and Go for application logic and Postgres/Redis as a data store. I've also been working on mobile applications with React Native and Expo.
