We interviewed Ben Ilegbodu, who is one of our speakers at ConFoo Vancouver 2016. His presentation is titled “Sweet ES6”. Ben is a senior UI engineer at Eventbrite with more than ten years of web development experience. He lives in San Francisco.
What is ES6?
Is ES6 supported on all major browsers?
Yes! All modern browsers, like Chrome, Firefox and Edge, support the vast majority of ES6 features. The latest version of Node also has full ES6 support. However, depending on your user base, you may still need to support very old versions of Internet Explorer, none of which have ES2015 support.
What would be the top reason that you would give companies to start using ES6?
