ES6, or ECMAScript, version 6 is the latest version of the ECMAScript standard. It is an update to the language, ever since the standardization of ES5 in 2009. This update allows you to work really fast, be backward compatible, be part of an object-oriented class, make use of arrow functions, build modules, gain access to yarns, help tackle CoffeeScript and traditional scooping problems.
