What is Make?

Make is a workflow automation and integration tool.

What can you use Make for?

Make allows you to integrate various tools together and pass data between them.

This makes it possible for you to leverage various specialised tools and join them together to create an entire system.

Why is this important?

Just a few years ago, if you wanted to build a system to do things, you’d probably need to use one tool to do it all. Passing data between applications was difficult and expensive and required specialised development skills (I know, I’ve built custom solutions for this).

Tools like Make lower the barrier to entry. And the price tag.
