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

I’m currently in Antwerp for the first edition of Full Stack Europe, “The conference for the whole team”. Earlier this week I guided a workshop “React from Scratch”. After a small Lightning Talk yesterday on “JavaScript Yellow”, I today did a full talk named “ESNext: Proposals to look forward to”

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: Pipeline Operator
  • ESNext Proposal: Optional Chaining
  • ESNext Proposal: Null Coalescing
  • ESNext Proposal: Dynamic Imports
  • ESNext Proposal: Decimal
  • ESNext Proposal: Cancellation API
  • ESNext Proposal: Slice Notation
  • ES2019 Feature: Object.fromEntries()
  • ESNext Proposal: Pattern Matching
  • 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) 🙂

💁‍♂️ If you are a conference or meetup organiser, don’t hesitate to contact me to come speak at your event.
