Description

When it comes to building app-like websites, JavaScript frameworks have taken the web by storm. Where does this leave seasoned Drupal developers? Should we abandon our favored languages in favor of JS? Not necessarily; Drupal 8 is a stellar CMS which is more than capable of standing on its own. Because many of the JS frameworks focus on front-end development, and thanks to Drupal's API-first work, we can combine the best JS frameworks with our favorite frameworks. Empower yourself by learning the ins and outs of JS to enable yourself to dive into a JS framework.

Certain things about JS seem strange when you are either new to programming or come from a PHP background: var, let, const, this, ES62015, ES6, asynchronous programming, various shorthand syntaxes, and more. We'll go over these and much more to prepare you for the brave new world of JS.
