  • Great Show guys! It was very nice to hear Axel besides just reading his blog 🙂 I enjoyed to hear comparisons on OOP and FP (Java and JavaScript on inheritance), new features of ES2015 especially real use of generators.
    Keep up the good work.

  • Very informative, as always. I have been working with JavaScript for quite a while, but there´s a lot o point that I simply ignored, and this podcast really opened up my eyes to several aspects of the ECMAScript standard. Thank you!
