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.

Metaprogramming - A journey into ES6

Submitted Jun 25, 2015

Intermediate JavaScript users can hope to graduate to advanced level by understanding metaprogramming and using ES6’s Symbols, Proxies and Reflect API for writing elegant code that’ll make their co-workers drool.

Outline

Metaprogramming is an art. It is an art often used by ninjas to conceal some of their swift and masterful sword strokes.

A mastery over metaprogramming can help each one of us write better code, both materially and spiritually. In this talk, we embark on a journey that will unravel some of the techniques of metaprogramming and specifically how to metaprogram with ES6’s new Symbols, Proxies and Reflect features.

Requirements

A laptop with a browser, probably just a little sense of humor along with it. :-)
