The Language Agnostic, All-Purpose, Incredible, Makefile
Make was born in 1976, making it one of the oldest tools in a programmer’s toolkit. Any tool that has been around this long is bound to have a mythology, stories, and examples that would be intimidating to someone unfamiliar with it.

Allow me to show you why it should not be intimidating, and furthermore, is applicable to your everyday workflow as an engineer.
