What's Coming to JavaScript

with

JavaScript is the most popular programming language in the world, but that doesn't mean it's perfect. In fact, it's far from ideal, but that's starting to change thanks to the ECMAScript 6 specification. Many key features and concepts that JavaScript lacks are finally being added to the language. In this course, we'll look at some of these new features and how we can use them.

I started my development career on the client-side writing JavaScript and DHTML components in my spare time. In 2005, Nicholas C. Zakas asked me to join him in writing the first edition of Professional Ajax for Wiley Publishing. Since Professional Ajax, 1st Edition, I've been blessed to take part in other book projects: Professional Ajax 2nd Edition, and Beginning JavaScript 3rd and 4th editions.
