Putting ES6 to work on the Web and on the Server

Marcos Caceres Platform Engineer, Mozilla

ES6 (ES2015) has arrived, now fully standardised, and well supported across a range of browsers, with transpilation support via Babel, and other transpilers, and of course support in Node.js.

In this whole day workshop, Marcos Caceres will get you up to speed with ES's and new primitives, and show you how you can take full advantage of these new features on the Web.

In it you'll learn how to appropriately make use of:

  • ES6 Fundamentals: including let, const, arrow functions, destructuring, rest, spread, default params, and template strings.
  • Primitives: Iterables, Maps, Sets, Objects, WeakSets, WeakMaps Asynchronous JavaScript: promises, generators, and async/await.
  • ES6 in the browser: bringing all the above together to make a site offline-capable using Service Workers.

Who's it for?

This workshop is for experienced JavaScript developers that are looking to broaden their knowledge of the language and its features. It will also prepare you to make full use of the next generation of Web APIs. By the end of the day, you will have a strong foundation on which to build progressive web applications, and confidently write async code on the server.

About Us

Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over a decade brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, indeed everyone involved in producing web and digital products to learn from one another, and the World's leading experts across this vast field.

We spend our lives thinking about what comes next, keeping up with trends in technology, practices and processes, and filtering the hype, to make sure you don't miss trends that matter, and don't waste time on hype that doesn't.

We promise attending one of our events will leave you significantly better versed in the challenges you face day to day, and in solutions for addressing them.

In 2016, we'll be organising Respond in Sydney and Melbourne, Transform in Canberra, Code in Sydney and Melbourne, and Direction in Sydney.
