The Technical Committee No. 39 (TC39) every year releases a new version of ECMAScript with new and cutting edge features. Languages like Javascript are based on the ECMAScript standard. ECMAScript has grown to be one of the world's most widely used general-purpose programming languages.

As a developer, it is important to stay at the forefront and embrace these features early. This video course helps you write better code that is efficient, performant and devoid of workarounds. In an effort to write efficient code, developers often resort to third party libraries that offer a ready to implement solution, built using features available in older versions of JavaScript. This often results in bloated code, which can be easily avoided by embracing features that are native to JavaScript, following the latest releases of the language.

By the end of the course, you will be familiar with all the latest features from both ECMAScript 2018 and 2019 standards. You will be able to embrace these features quickly as you work through the hands-on examples in the course.

Style and Approach

This course follows a hands-on learning style with step-by-step instructions so you can learn and implement the latest feature set from ECMAScript 2018 & 2019. Every lecture approaches a feature and explains its purpose and practical implementation through easy-to-understand code demos.

  • A hands-on course that helps you learn, understand, and implement the latest features of ECMAScript 2018 and 2019
  • The video course covers each new feature in detail with a description of the problem it solves and how it can be applied in your applications
  • Revolutionize your Node.JS and browser-based applications with new JavaScript features
