A primer on ECMAScript 5

Submitted Aug 25, 2011

Understand what’s new in ECMAScript 5 and how the new ES5 goodness can be used in web apps (or server for that matter) today.


ECMAScript version 5 is the latest ECMA ratified edition of the language called “ECMAScript” which the rest of the world knows as JavaScript. This session will review what’s new in ECMAScript 5 (ES5) and talk through simple demos of how each new ES5 feature can be used, what kind of problems they solve and how ES5 can be used today given that backward compatibility for older browsers is kind of a big deal!


Familiarity with JavaScript fundamentals.
