How long does it take you to prepare yourself for conference talks? Just looking at your well-designed slides, I can tell I envy you ;-)
The same for your screencasts. flexbox.io for example, looks great, and it's free. That's why I bought reactforbeginners.com only to show you my deep respect - and of course, because I couldn't spot a donation button on flexbox.io ;-)
Hey Wes! Just finished Learn Redux after already taking basically all of your other courses. They are absolutely blowing my mind every time! So thank you for that :)
I noticed you used Gulp with Browserify in the React for Beginners course and now Webpack in the Redux one. So I'm curious:
What is your take on the pros/cons of Gulp/Browserify vs Webpack given that many people might already use Gulp or even Grunt?
Is it worth switching to Webpack completely or just in specific cases?
Do you have any workflow tricks that specifically don't involve coding? In other words, what other apps on your computer help you? What habits are helpful in becoming a better coder or at least a coder with a better workflow? Do you use any physical tools, like a pad and pencil next to your computer? Do you listen to music while working? Stuff like that. (These are suggestions, you don't need to answer all the questions ;)
