Read only variables are available in JavaScript (es6/es2015). We will use const declarations and their benefits, like read only and block scope.

ES6 (ES2015) introduces a standardized module format to Javascript. We'll take a look at the various forms of defining and importing modules. Using Webpack to bundle up our modules and Babel to transpile our ES6 into ES5, we'll put this new module syntax to work within our project. Then we'll examine how to import 3rd party packages from npm, importing lodash with the _ underscore alias using the ES6 module syntax.

Generators in ECMAscript 6 are first-class coroutines that produce encapsulated suspended execution contexts. Whew! Yield values and iterate over them until no more values exist in the generator. We'll talk more about practical use later ;)

ECMAscript 6 lets us use string templates to gain a lot more control over strings in JavaScript.

Array Comprehensions didn't make the ES6 cut. You probably shouldn't use them ;)

See comments.

Block scoping can be surprising, and sometimes confusing, in Javascript. With es6, we have access to the let keyword to remove this pain.

ECMAscript 6 introduces the "arrow function" as a shortcut for creating anonymous functions with this scope bound.

Babel is a compiler that lets us right future JavaScript not yet fully in browsers (ES6 / ES2015, ES7 / ES2016, etc) and transpile it back into code that can be used now. We'll walk through installing babel, writing some future JS syntax, transpiling it, and running it in a browser.

This lesson is out of date and uses an older version of Babel.
