"Choose Your Own JavaScript Adventure"

The JS standard only gets you so far. Want to really step up your game at writing code? You gotta make your own JavaScript.

Yeah, yeah, ES6 is awesome. Everyone knows that. We’re all excited about not having to write the word ‘function’ anymore. But, isn’t it about time we stop obsessing so much about what TC39 puts into the official language spec?

Let’s talk about making and using tools (built in JS, of course!) to customize the language itself to your own liking. We’ll talk about macros, code parsers and transpilers, and other fun tricks to put the control of the language back in your fingers.

Make your own JavaScript. And no, that doesn’t have to stop you from playing nicely with others.
