ES6 was finalized in June and the new features are being added to the browsers and platforms we all use every day.  Of course, this brings about a new era of compatibility, feature detection, and things for you to learn to stay on top of JavaScript!

First, let’s take a look at the new features and what you might use to make your JavaScript development easier.  There will be cheers, and there will be jeers!  Then we’ll take a look at the current state of implementation, including the various ways you can use it today.  You can learn plenty about how today’s JavaScript really works by studying the changes that were proposed and ratified for ES6!

Building web sites that work well across various browsers versions and devices is always challenging for web developers. In the session, you’ll learn the best practices and strategy to develop cross-browser web sites that will work with the existing and future browsers. Tools for interoperability tests, cross-browser fundamentals, and tips and tricks on HTML5, CSS, JavaScript development will be illustrated. Feature detection, CSS prefix, and fallbacks will all be examined in the session. A real life example will be used to demonstrate step by step how to build cross-browser and plug-in-Free experiences. With a couple of simple changes to your sites, you can take advantage of web standards and HTML5 features today without breaking your sites in the future.
