Welcome to ES6 - ESNEXT!

Over the course of the evening we will explore the use of:

Transpilers:

- babel, babel-node

ES6

- Arrow Functions, Class syntax, Template strings

- Destructuring

- Default paramaters, Rest operator, Spread operator

- Let and Const vs Var

- ES6 iterators and functional programming in JS

ESNEXT (ES2016 - Stage 3)

- Understanding language updates - difference between ES7 and ESNEXT

- Rest + Spread properties

There will be a 45 minutes talk to explain the key concepts of ES6 and ES Next, what makes it really special. Then a 1.5 hour workshop to practise those concepts, for which we have prepared a challenge for you to work on. We encourage you to do pair programming to solve our challenge. There will be a mentor to answer your questions during the hacking session.
