JavaScript will celebrate it's 24th birthday in 2020. For a language that has been around for such a while it has seen very few, if any changes to the language itself. Well all that is about to change with ECMAScript.next (or ECMAScript 6). ECMAScript 6 modernizes JavaScript syntax, while bringing in features such as modules for better namespacing, class as a first class construct, and a variety of additional operators thus ensuring that JavaScript is ready for the next era of large scale modern web applications. ES 7, 8, 9 and now 10 all use the features introduced by ES6 to further the language.

In this two-part session, we will take a look at some of the features that ECMAScript 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 and 10 bring to the table. We will take an exploratory approach, and by the end of 3 hours, you will be well versed with ALL of the new features in JavaScript.
