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:

  1. What is your take on the pros/cons of Gulp/Browserify vs Webpack given that many people might already use Gulp or even Grunt?

  2. Is it worth switching to Webpack completely or just in specific cases?

Hey Wes, thank you for the detailed answer! I guess I'll just keep using Gulp for now and check out Webpack in a side project to get my head around the differences.

Right now I just have to get hot reloading working with Gulp/Browserify cause the constant full page reload when changing one single thing is bugging me. But that should be possible to achieve.

Thanks again and rock on!
