ES6/ES2015 Easy Wins

June 24th, 2015 3 Comments


The newest iteration of the Javascript language is just around the corner. As of June 2015 the spec for ES6/ES2015 has been approved. Because of that there will be a lot of new features and syntax coming to a browser near you!

Lets break down some of the Easy Wins from the new version. When I say Easy Wins I mean things that do not require a large amount of research to start working with. For example we will not be talking about Generators or Spread Operators, I think those require a more in depth post.

Some of the things thing we will go over are:

  • let
  • const
  • Template Strings
  • Classes
  • Arrow Functions
  • Promises
