    Really solid session. Starts with improvements in Microsoft Edge and then goes on to ES6 and ES7 with some great examples. Solid presentation!

    1. When will the slides be put up?
    2. The audio even in the High Quality video is quite scratchy and low. Even on full volume on my laptop I can barely hear Brian.
