If you're not using a task runner like grunt or gulp to automate your front-end development workflow then you're missing out on some incredibly powerful tools that can help simplify and improve your productivity.

The legacy of computer scientist Dennis Ritchie

October 5th 2011 and reports of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ death was headline news throughout online media outlets in every country around the world. Websites, blogs, twitter feeds, Facebook pages and news portals were filled with tributes, plaudits and commemorations (many of which were truly deserved - whether you’re an apple fanboi or not - and some that were just plainly ridiculous) and wherever you went it seemed, thanks to the media, that the man was larger in death than he ever was in life.
