Under-the-hood of web bundlers - Craig Taub LNUG June 2020

Tuesday, 23 June 2020

A look at the mechanisms inside web bundlers e.g Webpack.

Starting with why they are still useful.

Then how to build a small compiler, akin to Webpack. There are many interesting topics in a very small space here.

Next how to use the output of our compiler with an application.

Finishing with all the additional parts Webpack does which ours doesn't, hopefully with some idea on how those could be done.

About me I'm a senior developer at Nested with over 10 years experience. We do dev team talks every week and I have taken a couple, usually on the "under-the-hood of" theme. I was previously at the BBC.
