Command Line, NPM, Babel 6 and Webpack 3 Crash Course
What you'll learn
- Being able to operate command line instrument
- Being able to use NPM
- Being able to use Babel
- Being able to use Webpack
This course covers four area:
If you are a front-end developer and want to develop front-end programs in the modern way, then you just have to master these four skills.
Command Line is the foundation. Without it, you won't be able to operate anything.
NPM is a package manager. Without it, you won't be able to install anything.
It is impossible for you to create a complicated project using only one JS file. But the problem is that browsers do not support any JS modular system. We allocate our codes into different files for easier development and maintenance. In the end, we bundle all those files into one and link that bundled file to browser. Webpack is the tool we use to bundle files together.
In this course, you will lean all these four techniques.
Who this course is for:
- People who wants to learn front-end tools
- Anyone who wants to learn how to use command line
- Anyone who wants to learn how to use Babel
- Anyone who wants to learn how to use NPM
- Anyone who wants to lean how to use Webpack
Stop hiding unwanted things in mist (Jordan Peterson, Beyond Order). Shake off the dead weight that slows you down.
Your time is limited, and you have other things going on in your life. More likely than not, you will only get busier as time goes by.
New technologies show up everyday. Existing ones keep upgrading, adopting new features, switching to new syntaxes.
For you to stay relevant, you have to keep learning.
Most importantly, you must do so quickly and easily, without spending too much time or making too much effort. Otherwise, you won't keep up with the rapid tech progress, and your life as a programmer would be too painful as you are constantly struggling with learning something new.
It seems that you are caught in a dilemma where there is a lot to learn but not enough time to do it.
The programming world emphasizes reusing codes. You, as a programmer, must "reuse" learning experience. The experience of learning one programming technology should enable you to pick up another one with less time and effort.
In order to do so, you must disperse the mist and remove all the "unwanted things" you hide there.
The "unwanted things hidden in the mist" are the insufficient understanding of a coding language or framework. You have never dug deep enough, all you have done is copying what the manual says. When things get complicated, you won't be able to come up with a solution.
