Webpack is one of the most popular tools for bundling JavaScript applications and libraries, and it's growing more popular every day. It is so loaded with features that it's sometimes difficult to know what's even possible.

In this course, Kent C. Dodds takes you through some of the most valuable features of the Webpack JavaScript module bundler. We'll learn a ton about what it takes to optimize your Webpack configuration and your application to make it as fast as it can possibly be. We'll also go over what it takes to setup and write tests with webpack, Karma, Mocha, and Chai.

This course covers Webpack 2, but should also be relevant for Webpack 1.x.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Course can be updated to the latest webpack version. Some of the topics like code splitting using CommonsChunkPlugin has been deprecated in the latest versions I believe. Some new topics could also have been covered if upgraded to latest webpack version like

    1. Tree shaking with side effects file
    2. Webpack dev server
    3. Source map
    4. HMR

    Excellent course though. Thanks for your efforts. Your courses have been a great help for me being a newbie to JS world.

    It's a great course, I just wouldn't recommend because it's a little outdated, the current version of web pack is 4. But it's a good start to understand the ecosystem.
