ES6: The Future is Now

by Brian Koser

Last month I gave a presentation at work about ES6 (view the slides). Giving yourself two weeks to prepare a talk on a subject you don’t know is a great way to learn. :) But, I learn best when actually building something, so I converted thomas to ES6. Now I’m missing the new features in my work projects, especially arrow functions and string interpolation. I’m not yet sure I’d want to add a transpilation step to production JS, but I’m definitely using it on as many future personal projects as possible.
