When I first started my role at the NY Times, two weeks shy of a year ago, I was told that JS would be used heavily in my daily tasks however it ended up being CoffeeScript. Now, there is a push among the testing teams across the technology division to adopt the ES6 standard of JS and there are resources being made available for us to learn it. My desire was to transition to Android development and, hopefully, to pick up Golang development for backend work but since I have to learn JS for my primary work tasks I may as well learn it in-depth to understand how to use it for backend and native mobile integration. So, for the time being, I’m putting aside all else and focusing on JS ES6 development. My goal is to be full-stack proficient with it by the end of the Summer so that I can fairly assess whether it is worth me to pursue as a long-term career option or if I should go back to a Java/Android/Golang focus.
