Traditionally modules in JS have been difficult - we’ve fantastic, but complex, solutions like Browserify or RequireJS - but ES6 brings its own module system that is fantastic to work with. In this talk I’ll show you how it works and how you can use libraries to start using ES6 modules in your production apps today.

We’ll cover the following topics:

  • ECMAScript 6 and specifically the ES6 Module System
  • Using ES6 today with jspm and SystemJS
  • To present this I will build a small application that uses all the above technologies in the talk.

Jack Franklin is a developer, speaker and author who blogs at and has authored “Beginning jQuery”. Jack works as an engineer at GoCardless and is also a Google Developer Expert for the Chrome HTML 5 and AngularJS platforms.
