Webpack Academy

Sean Larkin, core team member of Webpack, will be leaving his current job at Mutual of Omaha for a new position at Microsoft. Because on his team he was the one most familiar with the webpack setup of the project, he looked for a way to transfer his knowledge. He landed on creating a video course on webpack that’s free for everyone.

I decided to create Webpack Academy, a training and educational platform for those wanting to learn more about webpack. This was a perfect way to not only allow me to give back to my team — by giving them free access to all of the content — but to also benefit the community by sharing it with everyone.


Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
