Event Details

The majority of JavaScript developers use the language "in practice" (that is, they learn on the job) but rarely go beyond a surface understanding. In this workshop, we're going to actually dive pretty deep into how some of the confusing parts of the language actually work. Especially when we talk about prototypes, we'll see some perhaps surprising conclusions that change the way we think about OO in JavaScript. The goal is that you'll know why JavaScript works the way it does, so that you can make informed decisions about how to use it.

We'll talk about:

  • this
  • closures
  • encapsulation (module pattern)
  • prototypes
  • common OO patterns in JS
  • not inheritance, behavior delegation

And as a bonus, if we have time, we'll dive into async code patterns, including:

  • callback styles (continuation passing, etc)
  • generators and coroutines (yield, etc)
  • promises


Location: 1230 Peachtree St NE, Promenade II Building, 2nd floor, Atlanta, GA 30309

This is an all-day workshop, and includes both lecture and lab exercises. There will be several breaks throughout the day, including a lunch break.
