Deno, a new way to JavaScript

Ryan Dahl – inventor of Node.js – has been working on Deno, a new take on Node as if it were designed today.

From async-await to ArrayBuffers, the JavaScript language has changed significantly in the decade since Node.js was designed. Deno takes advantage of these developments and incorporate lessons learned in the development of Node to provide a new JavaScript platform built on V8 and Rust. This talk will teach the audience how to get started with Deno.

I especially like the compatibility with ES Modules.
