JavaScript Modules Past & Present

Modules provide structure to our code, grouping related data and functionality into reusable building blocks. However, prior to ES6, JavaScript did not have a built-in module system. This month’s meetup will explore the history of modules through the advent of ES Modules, the first standardized module system for JavaScript.

Talk given by Mejin Leechor at the JavaScriptLA meetup.

    Why such a low resolution video ? It hurts my eyes.

    I like getting context, it helps me understand a subject. This did just that. I saw it yesterday and I like the why's and how's covered not just merely copy and paste recipes with little to no understanding of what its doing. Thanks!

  5. Thanks! Great talk. Just starting learning js, comming from Python and C++. I've been really confused about Modules in js before. Thanks again.

    One can clearly see that she masters her subject. I wonder why she seemed a bit nervous. Great talk, great content!
