Episode 91 // The EmberMap Podcast

Sam and Ryan talk about the tradeoffs between shipping a single bundle of code vs. the route-based code splitting approach used by many tools like Gatsby and Next. They also talk about their recent experiences building with React, and whether web developers should compete with native experiences or embrace what the web has to offer.
