Here is also a short Q&A section based on the questions asked during the webinar:
Q: Where can I learn more about EditorConfig?
A: Please check EditorConfig website, where you can find the formatting rules and some basics on working with EditorConfig.
Q: Can I navigate and run Gulp tasks with the keyboard shortcuts?
A: There are several ways to organize your workflow with Gulp: first, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to Show Gulp tasks action in Preferences | Appearance and Behavior | Keymap and then select the task you’d like to run with the keyboard and hit Enter to start a task. Secondly, since a new run configuration is created for every task, you can run (Ctrl-Alt-R on Mac or Alt+Shift+F10 on Windows and Linux) or debug it with the familiar shortcuts.
