What is ES6
ES6 is a short form of ECMAScript 6. Its also called ECMAScript 2015.
Before we dive deep into ECS6 let's have a general overview of ECMAScript.
ECMAScript is the mother of all scripting languages.
ECMAScript is language specification by ECMAScript International.
ECMAScript specifies the rules, description, and guidelines that a scripting language must comply with it.
ES6 or ECMAScript6 is a scripting language specification which is standardized by ECMAScript International. It is used by the applications to enable client-side as well as server side like Node.js scripting language.
ES6 offers you the facility to make the code more modern and readable. By using ES6 features, we write less and do more, so the term ' Write less, do more' suits ES6. ES6 has brought several new features such as scope variables, arrow functions, template strings, class destructions, modules, etc.
ECMA General Assembly accepted the first edition of ECMA-262 in June 1997. After that, several times it has been updated from time to time.
The Name ECMAScript was finally accepted by Ecma International, Netscape and Microsoft.
This is also good for those who have been working on modern programming patterns like Object-Oriented programming languages.
