Invest in EcmaScript 6
And that's fine.
The fundamental problem isn't the noise, it's investing in the noise. You won't get passed up if you don't pay attention to the noise. You will get passed up if you don't filter the noise, and focus on what is actually important and invest in that.
Don't get overwhelmed and use all the new features at once. Start with some of the simple features like template literals and arrow functions. Learn when it's appropriate to use them and when it's not. I've been using Tracuer (an ES6 transpiler) in production for six months and I still haven't used Generators or Promises. WeakMaps and Sets made their first appearance just this week.
Check out the es6 shim and try including it in your next project.
