Presentation: New in ECMAScript 2016, JavaScript's first yearly release


Day of week:

4:10pm - 5:00pm

ES2015 was over half a decade in the making, and ES5 took even longer. ES2016 is the first specification born of ECMA TC39's new yearly release cadence. What proposals might make the cut?

This talk will cover the changes TC39 is making to its specification publishing process for ES2016 and beyond and delve into some of the likely candidates including async functions, async generators, Object.observe, SIMD, and Typed Objects.

By the end of this talk you will be familiar with these upcoming additions and know how and when to use them in your programs.
