Published February 10, 2014 in Technology

Grunt is king. It is the ubiquitous task runner used for most nodejs projects and has quickly expanded to conquer other software ecosystems. However, its kingdom is vulnerable.

Grab your ticket, your foam finger, and your team-colored face paint and witness the battle, the revolution, and the crowning of Gulp.
