So you like es6, you have been using it for quite a while now but still can’t wrap your head around the “import”.
How does modularity in node.js work, why is the good old require dead and what’s so cool about the new import


This talk is about how modularity in JavaScript has evolved over the years, more specifically the import export syntax in the new Ecmascript Modules.
We will go through
1. What is a Module
2. Why Modules
3. CommonJS modules
4. ES Modules
5. Syntax
6. Use Cases
7. ESM in node.js


No requirements
