6:30pm - JavaScript Futures: ES2017 and the Road Ahead

JavaScript keeps on expanding. As adoption of the extensive new features from ES6 has spread and projects have adapted, the language has continued to evolve under the guidance of Ecma TC39. Over the past two years, another handful of constructs entered the ECMAScript specification. And there are nearly two dozen more proposals on the cusp of being added.
