Hi Sean sir, I have been in web development for a ~1 year and I build things using angular mostly. My question is how do I judge my work? Like there is no "supervisor" kind of person where I work, I just learn stuff and build things as per requirements. Applications work as they are expected to but I am not sure how to verify if I am doing things "the right way" or The app I built is as good as I think it is😛 . Thanks for your time!

What's the best advice you would give to a programmer getting started with frontend development in 2017?

Learn JavaScript Learn the history of JS Module Systems Learn history of build tools Learn JavaScript Try Functional Programming (Learn you a Haskell is my favorite Tutorial) Apply what you learn to JavaScript Figure out what you love most about FE Dev, and pursuit those skills.

What's the best way to get started with Webpack?

Awesome question!

I would say start by checking out our new documentation!!!! (webpack.js.org) We have a getting started section and a concepts section that are great for beginners.

I also released http://webpack.academy which has 2 free learning courses that mirror these concepts and documentation.
