Migrating to Modern JavaScript

Fri 10:45 AM - Sagewood Room

Writing JavaScript used to mean a tangled mess of hacks to avoid global variables, jQuery, and callback hell. ES2015 and beyond have changed all that. We'll migrate a jQuery based website to a more modern foundation, and we'll do it without using any of those darned JavaScript Frameworks that keep popping up! You'll learn how modern browser JavaScript engines provides a great place to write more readable and maintainable code, and you'll see that you often don't need polyfills or transpilers to use these features!
