Lazy load AngularJS with Webpack

When your SPA is growing its download time is getting longer and longer. That’s not going hand in hand with better user experience (remainder: that’s why we are doing SPAs). More code means bigger files and when minification isn’t enough for you the only thing you can do for your user is stop making him to download whole app at once. Here lazy loading comes in handy. Instead downloading every file let your user download only files which he need NOW, at this very page.

ECMAScript 6 Overview

ECMAScript 6 (also known as ECMAScript 2015) is the new, but not the newest (ECMAScript 7), version of ECMAScript standard and it’s based on ECMAScript 5.1. Since August 2014, ES6 is feature frozen. After publication process which will start in March 2015, ES6 will be finished in June 2015. Despite that ES6 is not finished yet there aren’t any good reasons to not use it today thanks to great tools like Traceur from Google or Babel. ES6 is solving many real-life problems which, as programmers, we are facing on a daily basis not only in browsers but also on the server side.
