ES2015: the next JavaScript version today

A session at SDD 2016

Tuesday 17th May, 2016

11:30am to 1:00pm (GMT)

ES2015, formerly known as ES6, is the biggest update for the JavaScript language that we've seen for many years, and it introduces a ton of new features. For example, we can now make use of classes with inheritance support, and arrow functions enable you to do functional programming and help with the current problems with this keyword. Not to mention block scoping and builtin promises! In this demo-rich session we'll visit the core new features of ES2015. All of this goodness you can use today, because with the right tools you can transpile to ES5, which is implemented in current browsers. We'll see this in action too.
