Although it is a huge part of the modern web, the syntax of JavaScript hasn’t really changed significantly in quite a long time. That all changed though last June, when ‘ECMAScript 2015’ was released. This major update contained some significant changes and new features. Now that more JavaScript engines and environments support the new specification it is a good time to get familiar with these changes. This webinar will cover the main differences with the new ECMAScript 2015 specification and the impact on how JavaScript code can be written. In particular, focus will be paid on how various ways to leverage the new version while also considering backwards compatibility.
