Node ES Modules

Full-stack module support is finally coming to JavaScript. The community has been working around the lack of standardized module support for several years. In the void, an ecosystem of alternative JavaScript module implementations sprung up. Node settled on a CommonJS-influenced module format. Client-side JavaScript module implementations are divided between CommonJS and AMD. Standardization has arrived to pave over these cowpaths with a unified approach that is appropriate for both environments.

This talk will start with a brief overview and history of modules in JavaScript. We will discuss the ES module standards. Finally, we will look at current and upcoming ES module implementations. Expect to walk away with an understanding of how to use ES modules in node, now and in the future.
