Course 587:
Moving to ECMAScript 6 and 7

(4 days)


Course Description

ECMAScript versions 6 (2015) and 7 (2016) extend the features of traditional JavaScript making it a more powerful and efficient language for enterprise development. JavaScript has become the standard language for user-interface development in the browser. Increasingly, JavaScript is being used at the server and in the cloud for business processing using tools like Node.js.

This course covers the new features added to JavaScript in the latest version, ECMAScript 6, and the upcoming version, ECMAScript 7. The course also teaches developers to utilize common tools and frameworks for package management, trans-piling, deployment, testing, source-control, and application development.

This course is approximately 50% hands-on with many short exercises to reinforce the learning objectives.
