Full Stack ES6 with Babel
The latest version of the language, ECMAScript 6 (or ES6 for short) was recently finalized, and it brings a lot of long awaited improvements for developers. Many features existing in other languages will now become available, and many existing ones were revisited & improved. As always, it will take some time before all the browsers and JS runtimes will implement the ES6 standard, but fortunately we can start writing code in it today. Our motivation in doing so is clear. This standard is being implemented rapidly and is more productive. Once it is fully implemented the code you write today will run natively tomorrow, and by then you will be already up & running with the latest standard skill already under your belt.
In this workshop you will write full-stack ES6 today. We’ll use Babel, along with other build tools like Browserify and Gulp, to transpile our ES6 into standard compliant ES5, which is supported by all browsers.
