An introduction to Webpack and building single page apps

Come join the DSM WebGeeks as we dig into Webpack, a module bundler for web developers. Justin Stevens will be giving us an overview on how to set up and build a single page app with Webpack. We’ll also take a look at Laravel Mix, a Webpack wrapper for Laravel, with Josh Larson.

We will be meeting on Monday, February 13th at 6:30pm at The Forge in Downtown Des Moines across from the sculpture garden.

If you’ll join us, we’d love for you to RSVP.


Talk: Intro to Webpack

Presenter: Justin Stevens
Front-end Web Developer

Webpack is a module bundler able to load dependancies on demand with code-splitting, treat resources as modules, and potentially speed up load times. You would most commonly use Webpack in a JavaScript single page app.

Talk: Laravel Mix

Presenter: Josh Larson
Front-end Engineer at Vox Media

Similar to its predecesor, Laravel Elixir, Laravel Mix is the latest installment in the popular PHP framework’s build tools. Mix is a wrapper for Webpack and doesn’t require Gulp or Grunt. We’ll look at how to use Mix inside a Laravel project and as a standalone tool.
