JS.Next: A Manager's Guide, 2nd Edition

Book description

ECMAScript 6 includes an extensive list of new features, so many that it may feel overwhelming. In this concise book, author Aaron Frost offers you a look at the latest JS specification and explains why your organization cannot afford to ignore it.

Speaking primarily to development managers, Frost describes several ES6 features and suggests some best practices to make your organization’s transition to ES6 easier. Specifically, this book explains:

  • New features, such as arrow functions, default values, modules, rest parameters, sets, maps, and many others
  • The rapid evolution of ECMAScript in the past decade and how ES6 came to be
  • Several reasons why you need to consider integrating ES6 into your present and future projects sooner rather later
  • How potential features for ES7, such as multi-threading and Traits, have already begun to appear
