Microsoft Chakra JavaScript Engine open sourced, time to learn some ES6!

With lots of effort from the developer community, ES6 is gaining a lot of ground. It's time to get your hands dirty!
Just today, Microsoft open sourced it's speedy Chakra JavaScript Engine under the MIT license. With help from the open source community, Microsoft plans to integrate the engine into NodeJS as alternative to the Google V8 runtime. Since Chakra's support for ES6 is better than that of V8's, it smells like good competition.

Definitely good times to get to know some ES6 and these links might be a good starting point:

Javascript Resources Part 1 : JSBooks

In the middle of my research on different Javascript Frameworks, I stumbled on JSbooks, which is a website that collects links to free ebooks on Javascript.
While I was not able to read through all of them, since there are quite a bunch, I worked through the transcript of Dan Wahlin's famous "AngularJS Fundamentals In 60-ish Minutes" Youtube Video
and it was quite helpful to get a first glance at the Angular SPA JS framework and what it's capable of. Some of the other books also look very promising and are definitely time well spent!
