Third Age of Javascript | Shawn Wang

Every 10 years there is a changing of the guard in JavaScript. The First Age started with Brendan Eich and ended with ActionScript. The Second Age started in 2009 when npm, Node, and ES5 all gave new life to JS. In the Third Age we will see the confluence of a few megatrends – ES Modules, polyglot tooling, collapsing layers, and the slow death of IE. Let us guide you through the exploration of the implications.

JavaScript / Web Tooling Now and Tomorrow | Chris Heilmann
