About Get Programming with JavaScript Next: New features of ECMAScript 2015, 2016, and beyond


Get Programming with JavaScript Next introduces the modern age of JavaScript programming with ES6 and ES7 without dragging you through confusing jargon and abstract examples you'll never use. In just 34 quick-fire sessions, you'll quickly be coding with the latest features and functions of ES6 and ES7!
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Great code is readable, bug-free, and maintainable. Modern JavaScript, aka JavaScript Next, makes it much, much easier to write great applications. New features introduced in ES2015 simplify the structure of your JavaScript projects and radically streamline async-oriented tasks like writing reactive applications and microservices.

About the Book

Get Programming with JavaScript Next introduces you to the new features included in the ES2015-and-later JavaScript releases. You'll learn example by example in 34 short lessons, each designed to drive home a specific skill. The coverage is complete: you'll explore new language syntax, declarations, and data types. You'll structure code with modules, replace callbacks with promises, and use classes instead of constructors. Every time you turn a page, complete an exercise, or study a carefully crafted illustration, you'll be one step closer to JavaScript mastery.

What's Inside

  • New features from ES2015 and later

  • Writing asynchronous code

  • Creating custom iterables

  • Troubleshooting modules and classes
