I asked this question: Considerations when using Gulp to compile typescript vs using Visual Studio
I do agree that my initial question (before edits) was outside of programmers.stackexchange, and after I received a comment from a moderator, I edited my question to make it more objective.
The reason given for closing does not seem to line up with the question. The reason claims that I asked for anecdotal experience, when really I'm asking for objective give and take between one methodology and another.
According to the FAQ, I can ask questions about development processes and methodologies (which is why I asked on Programmers, and not on SO)
I suspect that what really happened here is that there was a vote to close before my initial edit, and then it was eventually closed by "me too" close votes.
If I'm wrong about that and my edits did not bring the question into alignment with the site, I would like to know what more I might have done to have made the question suitable.
