Good Day Sir! Podcast Happy Hour

John De Santiago and Jeremy Rosshosted a Good Day Sir! Podcast happy hour on Thursday after the conference! It was a great time to meet other listeners and talk in person.


I had the honor of giving two presentations at Texas Dreamin here are the slides and links to the source code.

Introduction to EcmaScript 2015+

ECMAScript 2015 was released in June of 2015. It contained features to help make maintaining and understanding JavaScript easier with such things as block scoped variables, Arrow functions, default parameters values, classes, modules and more. While these features may not be supported in all browsers it is possible to write your JavaScript with the new features and transpile to the more available ECMAScript 5 standard. We’ll take a look at what these new features are and how to use them in your current projects.
