JumpStart to ECMAScript 6 (ES6) Development (TTSECMA6) Course Details:

ECMAScript 6 is the new edition to the ECMAScript language, whose specifications are inherited by JavaScript. ES6 gives a vast makeover to JavaScript by adding new syntaxes and APIs to write complex applications and libraries that are easier to debug and maintain. By learning the latest version of ECMAScript, you'll have a greater understanding of JavaScript and more confidence and fluency when developing with it - follow this course and use and adopt ES6 features into your work, instead of the usual tired JavaScript hacks and tricks.

JumpStart to ECMAScript 6 (ES6) introduces students to ECMAScript 6's built-in objects and shows them how to create custom Iterators.  It also provides guidance on Next, as well as how to write asynchronous code in a synchronous style using ES6, so developers can unlock greater control and sophistication in the way they develop with JavaScript.

Beyond this, students will also explore how to learn how to use Reflect API to inspect and manipulate object properties. Next, it teaches how to create proxies, and use it to intercept and customize operations performed on objects. Finally, it explains old modular programming techniques such as IIFE, CommonJS, AMD, and UMD and also compares it with ECMAScript modules and demonstrates how modules can increase the performance of websites when used.

If your team requires different topics or tools, additional skills or custom approach, this course may be easily adjusted to accommodate.  We offer additional related scripting, web development, programming and design courses which may be blended with this course for a track that best suits your objectives.

Working within in an engaging, hands-on learning environment, attendees will learn to:

  • Learn the new syntax of ECMAScript 6
  • Use the new prototype-based features introduced by ES6
  • Execute ES6 in a non-supported ES6 environment
  • Learn how to write asynchronous code using promises - it makes your code more efficient and easier to maintain
  • Find out how to use iterators, iterables, and generators
  • Explore object-oriented programming and create objects using classes
  • Build proxies using the ES6 proxy API and understand its uses
  • Learn how to create JavaScript libraries using ECMAScript 6 modules

This “skills-centric” course is about 50% hands-on lab and 50% lecture, designed to train attendees in core modern web development skills, coupling the most effective techniques with the soundest industry practices. Throughout the course students will be led through a series of progressively advanced topics, where each topic consists of lecture, group discussion, comprehensive hands-on lab exercises, and lab review. Our courses include a wide range of supporting materials and labs to ensure all students are appropriately challenged or assisted at all times.

This is an introductory (gentle intro-level) React development course, designed for basic-level web developers that need to further extend their skills in modern web development. In order to be successful in this class, incoming attendees are required to have current, hands-on experience in developing basic web applications, and be versed in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript essentials.
