JavaScript has grown from a webpage toy to being used in large-scale deployments both on the server and in the browser. This rapid growth has outpaced the growth of the language itself, which lacks features that allow teams to communicate requirements and build applications safely.

We'll explore features in the language and demonstrate how these features work together with tooling to avoid common pitfalls and enable a pleasant developer experience.
