A Taste of ES6 JavaScript: The Language and the Tools

Add to calendar

Curious about the features and benefits of JavaScript ES6, a,k.a ECMAScript 6 2015? Want to use it today? Rob Richardson says JavaScript has come of age, and it’s time for enterprise developers to embrace it. The latest version of ES6 adds lots of syntactical sugar to make code clearer. Rob covers new features such as constants, extended parameter handling, template literals, object matching, enhanced object properties, generators, and more. The good new is that you can use these tools in ES5 browsers today by leveraging a code bundler and transpiler. Rob takes a look at the new syntax such as =>, let, import, and class; transpilers like Babel; and Code Bundlers like Webpack to get you going right away. Join Rob to see how you can use these open source technologies to quickly build very powerful web apps today.
