Curious about EcmaScript 6 / 2015? Want to use it today? JavaScript has come of age, and this latest version adds lots of syntactical sugar to make our code clearer. You can use these tools in ES5 browsers today by leveraging a code bundler and transpiler. We’ll talk and code together through:

  • ES6 language features such as =>, let, import, and class
  • ES6 -> 5 transpilers like Babel
  • Code bundlers like Webpack
  • A tour through ES6 and JSX usage in React
  • A tour through ES6 and TypeScript in Angular 2

You can use these open-source technologies in production today to quickly build very powerful web apps.
