It wouldn't be wrong to say that this is now my favorite chapter, with Chapter 4, Asynchronous Programming, sliding down to number two. This technology is raw, fresh, and waiting to be explored.

We learned a lot of new stuff about ES2017 in this chapter, which, in the near future, will be the base of multi-threaded programs written in JavaScript. Well, that is it! You're now a good developer who knows a lot about ES2017 (that is, ES8) and a lot more about future tech, as well. Use your powers to make this world a good place!
