* REI's Expedition into Open Source

The software engineers at REI build, maintain, and operate the cooperative’s digital retail infrastructure, from our mobile apps to REI.com, and it runs on open source. We see many benefits to open sourcing our code, but it’s uncharted territory for REI. This is our journey preparing the cooperative to contribute our code back to the open source community. Will we be successful? What have we learned? You’ll find out!

* A Fast, Scalable Front-End Build System Pattern with Gulp

Gulp is an excellent task runner for building smaller front-end projects, but how does it measure up to larger applications like REI.com? How do you make it fast? How does it scale? The front-end development team at REI would like to share a pattern for a fast, scalable front-end build system we use on REI.com!
