An Introduction to ECMAScript 2015

A presentation at Frontend Conference Zurich 2015 in in Zürich, Switzerland by Jayne Mast

Last year ECMAScript 6 (now 2015) reached it’s ‘feature complete’ status, and browsers are already implementing it. It’s packed with new features aimed to make the developer’s life easier.

So what is new in ECMAScript 2015? What are the features that will help you in your day-to-day programming? And how can you start using it today?

The talk will cover a bit of the history of ECMAScript and useful features in ECMAScript 2015, like Array deconstruction and default values. And I will explain how, by use of preprocessors, you can use most of it today!
