hey, guys.. i just wrote an article about ES6 (ECMAScript 2015/ES2015), explaining some new resources of Javascript. I thought this could be a nice place to share. Let me know if you have any doubt or if you like it. Enjoy the read. I hope it is as interesting to you as it was to me to write it. https://medium.com/@flaviohfreitas/es6-javascript-does-love-you-f36c532c87db#.oabyxaldb

flaviohenriquecbc: please use the word «compiler» instead of «transpiler» :)

@sveri found it, had to search Rich's retweets. Says something about how good it is: https://yow.eventer.com/yow-2013-1080/lessons-learned-from-adopting-clojure-by-jey-fields-1397

@tbaldridge Great, thank you very much, I did not know that one 🙂

Maybe with ES6 we can do cljs format? Clojure: (format "Some %s thing" a) JS

(((a1) => `Some ${a1} thing`)(a))

To me, it feels like ES6 puts all the right features behind all the wrong constraints and abstractions...

I'm becoming more and more determined to show where JS undermines developers, toss some concrete evidence. Getting tired of high-level JS squabbles, would rather have concrete things to point at.

fellshard22:03:47

A lot of it comes down to the role of a programming language, and how little most devs seem to think about the consequences of a language's construction on their frame of thought.
