Objective

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

Description

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)

Requirements

Basic knowledge about Javascript
