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.
