You Don't Know JS: ES6 & Beyond
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: December 2015
Pages: 278

No matter how much experience you have with JavaScript, odds are you don’t fully understand the language. As part of the "You Don’t Know JS" series, this compact guide focuses on new features available in ECMAScript 6 (ES6), the latest version of the standard upon which JavaScript is built.

Like other books in this series, You Don’t Know JS: ES6 & Beyond dives into trickier parts of the language that many JavaScript programmers either avoid or know nothing about. Armed with this knowledge, you can achieve true JavaScript mastery.

With this book, you will:

  • Learn new ES6 syntax that eases the pain points of common programming idioms
  • Organize code with iterators, generators, modules, and classes
  • Express async flow control with Promises combined with generators
  • Use collections to work more efficiently with data in structured ways
  • Leverage new API helpers, including Array, Object, Math, Number, and String
  • Extend your program’s capabilities through meta programming
  • Preview features likely coming to JS beyond ES6

Comments about oreilly You Don't Know JS: ES6 & Beyond:

Though informative and helpful to a certain extent. I found this overly verbose and complex, especially with regard to the treatment of more advanced features, such as Symbols.

    I liked the details and precision in describing the new features even if at a certain point I lost the focus thinking at how much refactoring my projects will need!
