Video: What's next for JavaScript?

The upcoming ECMAscript 6 will provide the basis for modernizing the wildly popular JavaScript language

ECMAscript 6, in development as the basis for future versions of JavaScript, will improve the language for complex applications and libraries and make it a better target for code generators, a programming expert reveals in the below video.

In his presentation at the Frontend Conference in Zurich last week, author Axel Rauschmayer talks about the ECMAScript standard. JavaScript, Rauschmayer notes, is used in browsers, servers, and devices. "It's really astonishing where it appears," he says. "Basically, it's used for much more than it was conceived for." As such, ECMAscript will provide the foundation for improving the language's performance in its modern uses.
