Event description

Description

What the heck are all these arrows (=>) and dollar signs (`Hello ${name}`) doing in this new JS code I’m seeing? What’s with these objects with no value pairs? JavaScript is constantly improving, and with it comes syntax changes and new operations we may not have seen before. With ES6, we’re able to do more while writing less code and make it cleaner and more concise.

Join us as we explore this exciting new syntax, including let/const, template strings, arrow functions, and work through hands-on challenges together.

Suggested Experience Level:
Intermediate - familiarity with JavaScript basics is needed

What to Bring:
Laptop - this will ensure you get the most out of this workshop
Water bottle
