Episode 41 / 2019.05.27
Andrew Welch, Jonathan Melville
In this episode, we talk to webpack core maintainer Sean Larkin about what webpack is, who it’s intended for, and where it’s going in the future!
We discuss the serendipitous history of how Sean came to be a webpack core maintainer, and how his job at Microsoft came about as a result of it.
Join by guest host Jake Dohm, we then go on to discuss a whole lot of gritty technical detail of how webpack works, go through the various terminology, talk about Web Assembly, and what the future holds for webpack 5 and beyond.
Sean also drops some truth-bombs about CSS being flawed, and browser makers conspiring to kill off webpack. Tune in for the good stuff!
