Looking at vacancies and the JS build tools asked (Babel, Gulp) and then visiting their websites I notice that I don't understand what they are going on about.

"Leverage gulp and the flexibility of JavaScript to automate slow, repetitive workflows and compose them into efficient build pipelines."

What the actual corpo fuck?

The "get started" page expects you already know npm, typescript, and when you look at their pages, well... Where does the circlejerk end and the actual Javascript start?

I've been out of the corporate loop for a few years, seems it's all about build tools these days. I need to get out of this industry pronto.

    I thought gulp and grunt were all the rage like 5 years ago and that's it. How are they still going?

    gulp is still a nice and useful tool, and so are some of the latest-hype tools like snowpack; everything is good as long as we don't have to use webpack

    Am I the only one who read "vaccines"?
