Presenting: Optimizing JavaScript Web App Performance With Webpack

Bundling is far from the only thing that webpack can do to improve the performance of your web applications. Wanna hear about it?


I actually already talked about it at NEW Code Camp in Appleton, Wisconsin last Saturday. I spent some late nights preparing for it and didn’t feel as ready as I wanted to, but it went off alright.

Today and tomorrow, I’ll be refining the presentation some more and will be presenting it again at the Central Wisconsin Developer’s Group on March 30 at 6PM. If you want to hear the presentation, you can find all the details on that meetup page I linked to.

At some point in the future I plan to write an article about it. And I hope I can do it soon. I want to be able to put some content on here other than letting you know what I’ve done recently and what I plan on doing in the future.

Comprehensive Guide to webpack Course

That doesn’t mean I don’t still have things I want to say about the future! I just wanted to remind you (assuming you’ve already read it in a previous article) or inform you (if you were unaware) that I’m currently working an a course that will exhaustively cover webpack’s capabilities. It won’t obviously cover many of the more obscure plugins and such, but it’ll show you everything you really need to know.

I’ve already written 8,000 words just introducing the core concepts of webpack on Smashing Magazine, so I’m sure I’ll have plenty to teach you if I really get into everything important to know about webpack.

Vue.js Courses

Another thing holding me back from writing on this blog has been my work for AppendTo. My most recent pieces have been outlines for Vue.js Courses, or rather Vuex and Vue-Router courses. I’m not actually teaching these courses right now, but I’m working towards qualifying to work for Develop Intelligence (the company that owns the AppendTo blog) as a training consulant some day, so maybe I will in the future. And of course I want to be making more web development courses online as well.

So, that was all my announcements this time around. Thanks for checking in on me. I promise my next post will be a tutorial of some sort. God bless and happy coding.
