Metaprogramming in ES6

JavaScript has always had some rudimentary support for inspecting objects. That capability has been critical in the many high-profile frameworks that have helped shape the language into what it is today. ES6's Symbol, Reflect, and Proxy types take these capabilities to the next level and enable some truly wonderful techniques that can change how we not only write but also think about JavaScript code.
