JavaScript: Moving to ES2015

Explore and master modern JavaScript techniques with ES2015 in order to build large-scale web applicationsAbout This BookThis course offers an expert's eye on the latest ES6 features and how these advanced tasks fit together in JavaScript as a wholeDiscover robust JavaScript implementations of classic and advanced design patternsLearn about modern web architectures and build real-world apps on top of themWho This Book Is ForThis course is for experienced developers familiar with other object-oriented languages who wants to learn new capabilities of ES-2015 to improve their web development skills and build professional-quality web applications. This also goes for those who want to explore some modern JavaScript features, techniques, and architectures in order to develop cutting-edge web applications.What You Will LearnGet a run through of the basic language constructs, Functions, and Closures of JavaScriptCode using the powerful object-oriented feature in JavaScriptMaster DOM manipulation, cross-browser strategies, and ES6Harness the power of patterns for tasks ranging from application building to code testingIdentify the best use cases for microservicesGain expertise in responsive and dynamic website designEnable real-time communications between client-client and client-server/server-clientWrite complete applications using functional reactive programmingIn DetailJavaScript is a high-level, dynamic, untyped, lightweight, and interpreted programming language. Mastering modern JavaScript techniques and the toolchain are essential to develop web-scale applications. This Learning Path will upgrade your skills to ES2015, and you will get to introduce yourself to popular frameworks like React and Angular 2.In the first module, you will get familiar with the language constructs and how to make code easy to organize. You will gain a concrete understanding of variable scoping, loops, and best practices on using types and data structures, as well as the coding style and recommended code organization patterns in JavaScript. By the end of the module, you will understand how reactive JavaScript is going to be the new paradigm.Over the course of the next module, you will explore how design patterns can help you improve and organize your JavaScript code. You'll get to grips with creational, structural, and behavioral patterns and get a deeper look at patterns used in functional programming, as well as model view patterns and patterns to build web applications. By the end of the module, you'll be saved of a lot of trial and error and developmental headaches, and you will be on the road to becoming a JavaScript expert.In the last leg of this course, you will shift your focus to network programming concepts as you build a real-time web application with websockets. Along the way, you'll explore how the power of JavaScript can be increased multi-fold with high performance techniques. By the end of this module, you'll be a skilled JavaScript developer with a solid knowledge of the latest JavaScript techniques, tools, and architecture to build modern web apps.This Learning Path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package.
