Top-selling Udemy instructor Colt Steele has released a free Webpack course.
Available on YouTube, this 10-part series is geared towards newbies who may not have ever had any practical experience with this modern web technology.
The first video in the series starts as a gentle introduction to Webpack, a 9-minute intro that answers the basic question: “What is webpack?”
The series continues on to show you how to install, configure, and add loaders for CSS & SASS in addition to HTML and Files. Further on, Colt covers cache busting, getting started with a development server, and code splitting. Colt also shows you how to incorporate and use plugins.
Videos in the series include:
Part. 1: Intro
Part 2: Installation
Part 3: Imports, Exports, & Webpack modules
Part 4: Configuring Webpack
Part 5: Loaders, CSS & SASS
Part 6: Cache busting & plugins
Part 7: Splitting Dev & Production
Part 8: HTML-loader, File-loader & Clean-webpack
Part 9: Multiple entrypoints & Vendor.js
Part 10: Extract CSS & Minify HTML/CSS/JS
If you’ve ever asked yourself “What is Webpack?” this free mini-course may be just the solution.
There are numerous all-in-one coding bootcamp-style courses on Udemy that touch upon this technology, which is essentially a module bundler that takes modules with dependencies and then creates static assets that represent those same dependencies.
But Colt has brought his knowledge to YouTube where learners can learn in classic Colt Steele style (minus many cat cameos, but one does pop up at the end of the first video!) for free.
This is a fantastic introduction to a critical modern web development technology where you’ll learn with the guidance of an industry veteran.
