The future of JavaScript

JSFoo is India’s premier JavaScript conference. This year is the fifth edition.

The theme for the 2015 edition is the future of JavaScript.

We are looking for talks and workshops from academics and practitioners who are at the cutting edge of developments in JavaScript.

We want to hear all about:

  • Advances in browser JavaScript
  • JavaScript in hardware
  • Functional JavaScript
  • Cutting edge developments, including original work
  • ES6

Editorial panel

Commitment to Open Source

HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.

Workshops

If you are interested in conducting a hands-on session on any of the topics falling under the themes described above, please submit a proposal under the workshops section. We also need you to tell us about your past experience in teaching and/or conducting workshops.

BOF sessions

If you are interested in doing an unconference during the breakout sessions, propose a topic which will be of interest to the community.

Important dates:

Deadline for submitting proposals: 31 July 2015
Conference dates: 18-19 September
Workshops: 15, 16, 17 and 20 September

Living in the future

Submitted Jun 8, 2015

The next version of JavaScript, defined by ECMAScript 6 (ES6), is packed with great, new features. This talk gives a brief of ECMAScript 6 features and tools that enable you to use them today.

Outline

ECMAScript 6, the new Javascript standard, is going to be released by the mid of 2015. So its a good time to talk some of the cool features the javascript is going to get. The list includes

  • Classes
  • Modules
  • Promises
  • Arrow Functions
  • Block Scoping

ECMAScript 6 features are continually appearing in javascript engines. But not all the browsers support all the features. There are tools that can be used today to transpile code to ES5 so that it can work in today’s browsers. There are some well known transpilers.

  • Traceur
  • BabelJS (was 6to5)

I this talk we will discuss about writing ES6 code and use the BabelJS traspiler to run them in current browsers. Also see how this can be easily automated using the build tools like gulp. I am planning touch upon one of the famous module loader browserify.

Requirements

Basic knowledge about Javascript
