ECMAScript 6 – video presentation by Axel Rauschmayer

ECMAScript 6 is the next version of JavaScript (the current version is ECMAScript 5). It will be an official standard by the end of 2014, but there are tools that enable you to use it right now. This talk explains the goals for ECMAScript 6, how it is designed, what features it has, and how to use it on current JavaScript engines. Features include: block-scoped variables, arrow functions, better parameter handling, classes, modules and much more.
