So, Linz has a software conference. One that’s supposed to stay. I think it’s
about time. Linz has a wonderful IT community, with lots of great companies and
so many schools and universities specialised for software development. Except for the short-lived Kod.io movement (spanning Kod.io,

hickups here and there. Here I try to collect some issues with Gulp.js and first aid
