Modern JavaScript Development

Modern JavaScript Development

Audience

This course is for anyone who wants a detailed look at ECMAScript 10 (aka ES10 or ES2019), the current version of the ECMAScript (JavaScript) standard.

Prerequisites

You should have familiarity with HTML and CSS.

Experience with earlier versions of JavaScript would be beneficial.

Duration

3 days. Hands on.

Course Objectives

JavaScript has undergone a transformation in the last few years. JavaScript now has full support for object-oriented programming, functional programming (via arrow functions), asynchronous programming, and modular development (via CommonJS modules). JavaScript also now has some extremely handy syntactic features such as destructuring, the spread operator, and generators.

This course takes a thorough look at all the new features in JavaScript from ES6 to ES10, and also shows how to transpile into ES5 for compatibility with all browsers.

What you'll learn:

  • Arrow functions and other function enhancements
  • Destructuring
  • Array and object enhancements
  • Object-oriented programming using classes and inheritance
  • Iterables, iterators, and generators
  • API enhancements
  • Asynchronous working
  • Modules
