When you think you're up-to-date with your ES6/ES2015 knowledge, you're wrong. In this course, Getting Started with ES2017/ES8, you'll upgrade your knowledge to ES2017, unofficially known as ES8 and, in the process, take a look at the small ES2016/ES7 release as well. This course will teach you the new async functions and the Shared ArrayBuffer together with atomics. You'll also learn new functions on the Object type that let you do reflection on types in a better way. You'll learn how working with strings has become slightly easier. The next versions of ES2016 and ES2017 are supported by browsers and by Node right now, so there's no need to wait! And in case you are confused by all these releases, in the first module the ECMAScript release process called TC39 is explained as well as the javascript-ECMAScript relationship. After watching this course, you'll be up and running with all the features of ES2017.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Roland Guijt, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with ES2017, AKA ES8. I am independent software developer, trainer, and speaker based in the Netherlands. If you think you're up to date with your ES2015, AKA ES6 knowledge, you're wrong. JavaScript is getting features like never before. The two next ECMAScript releases, ES2016 and ES2017, are final, and are already supported by browsers and Node. With E2016 as a starting point, you will upgrade your JavaScript knowledge to ES2017 by watching this course. Some of the major topics that we will cover include async functions, working with shared array buffers and atomics, the exponentiation operator, handy additions to the string type, and I'm also covering the ECMAScript release process and its relationship with JavaScript. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the basics of JavaScript. Join me to learn this great new version of JavaScript here at Pluralsight.
