Webpack and Babel

Is it important to learn how to configure web-pack and Babel for JavaScript? I am new in the web-pack and Babel and for me, it’s quite complex to configure and install those kinds of stuff.

Useful to understand at least the basics, but you can basically ignore them 90% of the time if you use something like create-react-app, which gives you sensible defaults out of the box.
