We identified distinct kinds of users: Learners who are finding the specification to the first time, Observers of the specification who are watching proposal improvement, and Reference Users who desire a central place where all the substantial documents can be found. The website was designed around these users. So as to not overwhelm people with information, the MVP is especially focused on the information, namely suggestions of our process. Links are contextualized in order to help people understand what documents they’re currently looking at.

We are looking forward to your comments and comments. This endeavor was community-driven– thank you to everyone who made it possible!

Developer frustrations

Included in the survey, emails gathered so as to get in contact later, as we were uncertain how many responses we’d get. The goal was to better understand specific concerns. But , we had an overwhelming amount of feedback that pointed us in the direction we had to go. After reviewing this, we decided against keeping to ask feedback publicly and this information. Thank you to everybody who participated.

Resource needs

The site is quite easy, but gives us a beginning point from which to move forward. We’re continuing to work on documenting our procedure. We expect to make more of these documents available and to integrate them.

The site comes as a part of work that began last year to comprehend the way the community accessed information . We did a run of in-person interviews to better understand what people fought. Among the biggest requests was that we publish and maintain a website that helps people find the information that they are looking for.

Ecma TC39, the JavaScript Standards Committee, is proud to announce that we’ve shipped a website for following updates to the JavaScript specification. This is the first part of a project aimed at enhancing our information documentation and distribution. The website provides a list of suggestions that are near conclusion, as well as links to our most documents. Our intention is to help people find the information they need in order to understand the specification and our process.

 

We’ve got plans to enlarge it while the website is straightforward and now an MVP. These programs include a set of documentation. As the need arises, We’ll experiment with different features.

The survey surfaced a number of problems that have been affecting the community around JavaScript. Three of the four frustrations were related. One which was not directly related but profoundly highlighted was that the uncertain progress of suggestions. This was also surfaced in GitHub problems. We are working through thoughts, although this is challenging to resolve. For now, we have added a link. We have.

The two most items with respect to resources were a Website along with Learning Resources. These two are connected, but need different kinds of work. Since this highlighted the need we began work on this right away.
