What's new in JavaScript?

Last Monday I did my public first talk outside of work life. A short 20 minute presentation on modern JavaScript features at a local .net developer meet-up - dot net notts.

Dot Net Notts

I had no slides, the talk was comprised of live coding with prepared examples showing off the five areas of ES2015 I think bring the biggest change to the language.

  • Variables
  • Template Strings
  • Arrow Functions
  • Spread and Rest
  • Generators

The talk went fairly well, with the forgivingness of JavaScript helping me out on more than one occasion. Hopefully many more of these to come.
