In spite of being extremely powerful and reliable, JavaScript suffers from unnecessary redundancy and a heavy runtime CLI. If you remove that from JavaScript, then what remains is the international JavaScript programming standard – the lightweight and fast ECMAScript.

In this video course, we will show you how you can start implementing ECMAScript programming techniques, use the ES 2017 features, and progress towards becoming a skilled web developer with JavaScript. You will be introduced to the latest Async functions, the new object rules and relationships, and how to use them properly in your program.

You'll learn how building modular applications is much easier with the native module system and how your code can become cleaner, more succinct, and more enjoyable to work with. Moving on, we teach you how to create reflection objects, use them to expose hidden object properties, and test the security of these objects. Next, the videos demonstrate code samples and demos of the corresponding features, and their use cases.

By the end of the course, you will be familiar with the new features that are available in ES 2017.
