Web Directions Global Scope ’21 session spotlight–The Third Age of JavaScript

The Third Age of JavaScript

Shawn Swyx Wang, Head of Developer Experience Temporal.io

The way we write JavaScript is poised for dramatic change in the 2020’s. Here’s why: the slow death of IE11 and rollout of ES Modules will converge toward a new generation of JavaScript tooling. These tools are faster, typesafer, and polyglot, leading to both a better developer and user experience. Change is afoot!
