A couple of Drupalists meet WordCamp London 2017 - WordCamp London 2017 was my very first WordPress community event; my first time up close with a community rumoured to have a very different focus and feeling than the Drupal community I know and love. But contribution, the one theme unifying us across all open source software communities, brought us all together.

My trusty microphone, camera, and I recorded a few great conversations at DrupalCon in Mumbai that have never been released until now. Today, a conversation with Rakesh James, who credits Dries for giving him a way to live and support his family with Drupal. Rakesh is an extraordinary and generous person; he's personally paid that forward, giving others in India the chance to change their lives, too, by teaching hundreds of people Drupal and giving them a shot at a career, too. He's also a top 30 contributor to Drupal 8 core.

In the first installment of this blog series, we set up a workflow that allows us both to transpile arbitrary ES6 into JavaScript legible to all modern browsers and to bundle that JavaScript into browser-ready assets. We also explored how working with variable scope has improved in ES6 and working with let and const statements. In this second installment, we’ll be digging deeper into assigning values to variables as well as the spread (or rest) operator.

For many Drupal developers, JavaScript can sometimes feel like an uncharted wilderness. Fortunately, JavaScript has entered a new renaissance since the release of open-source projects like V8 and Node.js, and frameworks like Angular, Ember, and React are rapidly gaining steam. The advent of ECMAScript, a codified specification for JavaScript, has ushered in a new era of innovation in the language, culminating in the new modern version of JavaScript: ES6.
