ES6 Mini Cohort

Virtual Classes
Oct 19 - 21, 2021, 7:30 PM (EDT)

About this event

ECMAScript 6 (also known as ES6 or Javascript 6) is one of the most currently used versions of Javascript. Javascript, like anything else in the software world, continues to evolve and grow over time, with new features and syntax added every year. This is why it’s important to stay updated on how the language changes over time.

This class is meant to be a precursor to GDI's upcoming Intro to React 16 Cohort, but can also be taken as a stand-alone class.

Please note that there will be an expectation to have sound and video on for all participants to provide the best collaborative virtual learning environment.

Class Schedule:

  • Tuesday, October 19 @ 7:30 - 9:30p ET
  • Thursday, October 21 @ 7:30 - 9:30p ET

Class Goals:

  • Variable declaration: const, let instead of var
  • String interpolation
