popular and ubiquitous language has evolved into a respectable language.
Whether you’re writing front-end applications or server-side code, the
phenomenal features from ES6 and beyond—like the rest operator,
generators, destructuring, object literals, arrow functions, modern
classes, promises, async, and metaprogramming capabilities—will get
book to get started quickly and dive deep into the essence of modern
language and the gotchas to avoid.
language, thought would become a popular and ubiquitous language. Not
long ago, it was the most hated and feared language you could use to
significant makeover. Troublesome features have been replaced with
better, elegant, more reliable alternatives. This book includes many
practical examples and exercises to help you learn in depth. It will not
bore you with idiosyncrasies and arcane details intended for bad
interview questions. Instead, it takes you into key features that you
can readily use in your day-to-day projects.
Whether you program the front-end or the server side, you can now write
default parameters, template literals, rest and spread operators,
destructuring, arrow functions, and generators. Take it up a notch with
features like infinite series, promises, async, and metaprogramming to
create flexible, powerful, and extensible libraries. While the evolved
features of the language will draw you in, the hundreds of examples in
this book will pin the concepts down for you to use on your projects.
