Version 7: The Evolution of JavaScript

By Jafar Husain

We held our last Netflix JavaScript Talks event of 2014 on Dec. 2nd, where we discussed some of the interesting features already available for use in JavaScript 6, and where things are headed with JavaScript 7. As a member of the JavaScript TC39 ECMAScript committee, Netflix has been working with other committee members to explore powerful new features like Object.observe, async functions and async generators. Many of these features have already started appearing in modern browsers and it’s not too early to start playing with them.

The video from the event is now available to watch below or on our Netflix UI Engineering channel on YouTube along with other talks from past events.

It’s been a lot of fun hosting our Netflix JavaScript Talks series this past year and we have several exciting talks planned for 2015. If you’re interested in being notified of our future events, just sign up on our notification list. We’ll also be sharing some interesting work we’re doing with React at the React.js Conf at the end of January.
