ES6 is Not Javascript

An introduction to the significant enhancements to Javascript. The newest version of Javascript is so fundamentally different then ES5 that continuing to use the language in the “old” way is no longer best practice. This talk presents those parts of ES6 that revolutionize the language, and demonstrates how to use them.
