Today most of the modern browsers introduce the ES modules support, so we can start using module scripts natively which will change the game soon.
We will review how they work, understand the differences with the bundlers/transpilers solutions and how to use Modules not only for usual scripts but for ServiceWorkers etc.
Looking into examples we will understand the native modules features, performance details and lazy/on-demand loading abilities.
