What's new in ES2017

Ondřej Žára




Starting from 2015, the JavaScript standard is following the once-per-year release cycle paradigm. The last year was not very feature rich, but 2017 is going to introduce some sweet new APIs for web developers. Let's have a quick look at the features being standardized as well as their support in current web browsers.

Ondřej Žára is interested in almost all web technologies, especially in JavaScript. He has worked as a frontend developer in Seznam.cz for the last ten years, spending his free time as a lecturer at the Czech technical university in Prague. Two years ago, he wrote a book about various JavaScript techniques for intermediate audience.
