Bundling and Minification - SharePoint best practice

Found this really helpful article about bundling and minification using visual studio extension:

SharePoint script on demand

This is very old now and exists in market from long time for SharePoint, So thought of summarizing it once.

1.     Create file with name ShareTechPoint.js and below content

function sayHello() {
//Notify SharePoint that the custom file has loaded.
SP.SOD.notifyScriptLoadedAndExecuteWaitingJobs("ShareTechPoint.js ");

2.     Now write the below code in another  HTML/ascx/aspx file

<script type="text/ecmascript">
    function runCode() {
        SP.SOD.RegisterSod(‘ShareTechPoint.js ', 
        var x = ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(sayHello, 
                              "ShareTechPoint.js ");
<input id="Button1" type="button" value="Run Code" 
onclick="runCode()" />


This is how you can implement Script on demand for SharePoint.
