Development teams are now using the exciting—and extensive—new JavaScript features available within ES6. Yet, as adoption has spread and projects have adapted, the language continues to evolve and expand under the Ecma TC39 committee. Last year, two features were quietly added for ES2016. In January, another handful of improvements were marked final for the release of ES2017.

One thing is certain: the JavaScript community is not slowing down! Investigate the new and proposed features of JavaScript. Understand the ES.Next maturity stages and the TC39 review process. And most of all, become empowered to prepare for what lies ahead.
