Jamund Ferguson is a UI Engineer at PayPal. He helps his team develop best practices for both node.js and client-side frameworks and loves talking about JavaScript. He is also an active contributor to several open source projects including Kraken-js and ESLint.


I'm excited to share with how EcmaScript 6 (ES6) has helped us clean up our code base and standardize conventions at PayPal. We'll cover some of my favorite syntax enhancements and show a lot of real-world code and how it compares to doing things the old way. This talk is really meant for people of all skill levels with JS. I'll be talking through the basics of ES6 and showing how they make life much easier in practice. If there's time we'll also chat briefly about platform support for ES6 and how to build code in ES6 that you can run everywhere!
