JavaScript isn’t going anywhere and it’s changing now more than ever. If you are a Drupal developer that learned JavaScript while learning JQuery and are feeling a bit lost with all these new JavaScript changes, this is the session for you.

In this session, we dive into a lot of the changes that are happening in JavaScript through the lens of a Drupal developer. We will discuss why keeping up with the changing JavaScript language is important for your career as a developer and even get hands-on with some JavaScript code. This session also covers how you might start using some of this newer JavaScript code as a Drupal developer.

Learning Objectives
  1. Write JavaScript code using new features that were added to the JavaScript language in the last 5 years
  2. Integrate new JavaScript features into your new Drupal projects
  3. Use and understand JavaScript transpilers to ensure backward compatibility and browser support
