Get Started with ECMAScript 6

Really good article on the new features of ES6

ECMAScript 6 or ES6 is the latest standardized version of JavaScript. The exciting thing is it’s been approved today by the standards body and that means broader browser support is coming. ECMAScript 6 has been in the works for some time now – it was first announced in 2008. An ever increasing amount of JavaScript developers have been preparing for ECMAScript’s launch, and soon it’ll be unavoidable. It’s also worth noting not all versions of ECMAScript will take this long to release. They plan on doing smaller, yearly releases, so now’s a good time to get up to speed.

Many developers have switched to ECMAScript 6 in development and use a transpiler, a ES6 source to ES5 source compiler, to publish their code to browsers and environments that don’t support ES6 features yet.
