Main Presentation:

Fire up your Transpilers – ES2015 and ES2016 are here

Forest Marie (Supervisor at Turner Industries)

This year the ES2015/ES6 specification is approved. Come learn why an old server-side guy like me is even more convinced that the language is ready for production and less painful than ever. We’re take an introductory look at some favorite – and even controversial – features of the new hotness known as ECMAScript 2015 and even take a peek at some ECMAScript 2016 features.

Forest Marie is a software development supervisor, Scrum Master at Turner Industries. Forest has two professional passions: Coaching and empowering great people to become high performing teams and learning new languages, paradigms that allow for cleaner code delivered faster.
