Please Stand...

What this workshop is not

  • Taking your app and migrating that
  • Teaching EVERYTHING there is to know about Webpack
  • Boring / hands off

What this workshop is

  • Migrating an app from Require.js to Webpack by touching as little of the application code as possible
  • Migrating iteratively
  • Instructive in that you'll learn what you need to do so too
  • Interactive, exciting, and fun!
