ES2019 Features: What Even Are They?

I find a lot of joy in looking into the technical intricacies of the language we use on a daily basis; breaking it down into bite-size, consumable brain treats. Each new feature set of ECMAScript gives me the opportunity to take another deep-dive into JavaScript. Investigating what lead to these features being needed and digging into what we can now do thanks to the new code. It can be easy to get excited about a new feature and jump right into using it in our code (especially since browsers and implementing the changes faster 👍👍). Yet, understanding the journey to these features and their details can help you get the most out of features and gain some appreciation for the language that's helped so many of us build our projects.
