Average rating: ****.
(4.55, 11 ratings)

This talk will give an overview of what is most likely going to be in ECMAScript 6. ECMAScript 6 is the next version of the JavaScript standard. Its specification will be finished by the end of 2013. Modern browsers will probably have full support for ECMAScript 6 sometime in 2014, but they already support parts of it and that support will only increase as the specification evolves.
