Burn It Down and Start Again: Principles of Modern JavaScript

Presented by: Joe Morgan

Heard about the latest JavaScript syntax? Seems like a day doesn’t pass without a language update. And with all the focus on syntax changes, it’s easy to miss the subtle principles driving JavaScript. Modern JavaScript doesn’t just have new tools, it’s composed differently. Don’t use a feature without understanding why it matters. What problems does a new feature solve? How can new syntax make code easier to use and reuse? Modern JavaScript patterns follow three basic principles: predictability, readability, simple, and flexibility. In this session, attendees will learn how to think in modern JavaScript. Attendees will explore principles in modern JavaScript and learn how it applies to new syntax as well as upcoming language changes. Don’t just throw new syntax into old paradigms. Write intentional code.
