Wait, you're still using jQuery? That's so 2010. Have you heard of ES2015 (ES6), ES2017, Promises, Traceur, Babel, or Webpack and wanted to learn more? This talk is for developers, technologists, or product managers who feel left behind and want to catch up with the breakneck pace of JavaScript.

We now live in a world where JavaScript is advancing so quickly that the biggest problem is a developer's inability to keep up ("JavaScript fatigue"). The language is no longer confined to the browser. It runs on your server, database, phone, drone, or watch. With hundreds of language-level changes, 400,000 packages, and rapid browser release cycles, it is getting more and more difficult to keep up with this new era of JavaScript.

In this session, attendees will be brought up to speed on the state of JavaScript. First, we'll discuss the new features and syntax in the language itself. Second, we'll talk about the tooling required to use the code in production today.
