So, is there any thought to the future of how we think of ES6? I mean, it’s more than 5 years old now, and ES11 is out. At what point do we stop thinking of ES6 as something “extra” and just think of it as part of JS? Also, there are things that JS developers use that are post ES6.
I think thinking of ES6 as an optional expansion pack of JS does it a disservice and perhaps fuels some of the “do I need to learn this” attitude. Granted, it’s not just FCC that does this, but I think it would be something good to think about.
Would it be good to call them “Basic JS” and “Modern JS”, or “Pre-ES6 JS” and “Post-ES6 JS”? Should we be appending to the second curriculum as new features come out? Maybe just for the most likely to be encountered ones?
I don’t know, just thinking out loud.
