Getting started with JavaScript is as easy as placing a script element in your HTML, but having all your JS in one file quickly becomes an unmaintainable mess. How can you wrangle the beast of thousands of lines of code? How can you reuse other people’s code, and reuse your own code? What is a module loader and why do you need one?

Join Chasen Le Hara in discussing the basics of JavaScript modules and why you should start using a module loader TODAY to better organize your code and make it fast in production.
