Let’s dive into the topic of module federation! This time our host, Łukasz Chludziński, invited two experts – Zack Jackson, the creator of Webpack, and Paweł Trysła, who is the brain behind Re.Pack. 

Paweł was already a guest in one of our podcast episodes, where he talked extensively about bringing Webpack to React Native. If you want to know more about Re.Pack, take a listen!

Pawel joined us for this episode because the new version of Re.Pack, Re.Pack 3.0 was released in September. It includes a new API for Module Federation in React Native and long-awaited documentation. 

In this episode we focus on Module Federation – an answer to, uh, complexity of publishing shared common code in the NPM packages. 

To make this talk a comprehensive take on Module Federation on mobile and web, we invited Zack Jackson. Zack elaborated on how he got involved in Webpack and how he came up with the crazy idea of Module Federation.
