What is ES6?
The reason for this is because not all browsers support the same code base. Older browsers might not support the new syntax ES6 offers so we use things like BABEL so you don’t have to wait. Pretty cool, huh? Now that’s out the way, time for the fun stuff…
What Features of ES6 Will This Series Cover?
If you google or do any type of research on whats new in ES6, you’ll most likely come across “let vs var” and thats great, I’m going to cover this topic as well. However, ES6 solves bigger problems than block scoping and difference in hoisting. Throughout this series I’m going to cover things like Template Literals, Spread and Rest operators, Arrow Functions, Classes, Modules and some good rule of thumb suggestions to help get you through your coding journey.
What are the Benefits of Learning ES6
In Conclusion, I hope this sets the expectations for the series. Look out for my next post in this series where I’ll be covering the benefits of block scoping and showing a few examples to help get started.
