ESNext: Proposals to look forward to (Full Stack Ghent)

Yesterday I was invited as a speaker at the March 2019 Meetup by “Full Stack Ghent” (their first one!) at the Clarabridge CX Social offices.

At the meetup I gave a reprise of the talk “ESNext: Proposals to look forward to”, which I had already done at a Full Stack Antwerp meetup, a few months ago.

With the yearly ECMAScript releases (ES2015..ES2019) of a lot of things have changed in JavaScript-land. And even more changes are ahead!

This talk takes a look at a few of the upcoming ECMAScript features, which will (hopefully) become part of the ECMAScript Language Specification in the near future.

The slides are up on slidr.io, and also embedded below:

Talk Outline:

  • TC39: Info on TC39, what they do, and how they work.
  • ESNext Proposal: Field Declarations
  • ESNext Proposal: Optional Chaining
  • ESNext Proposal: Null Coalescing
  • ESNext Proposal: Pipeline Operator
  • ESNext Proposal: Dynamic Imports
  • ESNext Proposal: Pattern Matching
  • ES2015 Refresher: Promises
  • ESNext Proposal: Cancellation API
  • ESNext Proposal: Function Bind Syntax
  • ESNext Proposal: Slice Notation
  • ES2019 Feature: Object.fromEntries()
  • Fin.

Thanks to the organisers for having me, and thanks to the attendees for coming to see me. I hope you all had fun attending this talk. I know I had making it (and whilst bringing it forward) 🙂
