He was experimenting with a new build task manager when a heretofore unknown combination of tools lead to him summoning the Prince of Darkness and Father of All Lies.
“I was just doing my thing, you know? I had gulp running my stuff like eyeglass so that I could compile my SCSS and all of that was being pushed into broccoli which was webpacking and browserfying those and then everything was getting transpiled by babel and then of course I had that all being piped into grunt which was running jshint and jslint. Nothing out of the ordinary. Anyway, I decided to drive the initial kick off with a Makefile and suddenly there’s this, like, dark presence in my room with me.”
Asked if these frequent summonings impacted his duties in Hell, Abbadon the Deceiver, Serpent of Old shrugged off the inconvenience. “It’s nice to do house calls again. I was really popular a few hundred years ago but then all my big fans got burned at the stake. It’s been kind of quiet since then. A politician here, a celebrity there. Real relaxed pace. It’s nice to be busy again.”
