Exploring JavaScript – Objects & Prototype Chain

Objects & Prototype is the most important aspect and learning this will transition you into an advanced JS developer

JavaScript is that language that you need to know to build applications that work across the platforms and knowing about the JS from the point of the language specification is really important.

What you’ll learn

  • In depth understanding of JavaScript’s Object & Prototype system.
  • How Object/Classes, Prototype, THIS keyword & NEW keyword work in JS.
  • Learn in-depth about Prototype Chain.
  • Visualise how Prototype Chain in JS connects to object and functions..

Course Content

  • Introduction to THIS –> 8 lectures • 37min.
  • Classes & Inheritance in JavaScript –> 5 lectures • 48min.
  • Prototype Chain –> 5 lectures • 45min.
  • Advanced Prototype Chain –> 3 lectures • 30min.

Exploring JavaScript - Objects & Prototype Chain

Requirements

  • Basic understanding of JavaScript.

JavaScript is that language that you need to know to build applications that work across the platforms and knowing about the JS from the point of the language specification is really important.

 

In this course, we will cover the in-depth analysis and understanding of

  1. THIS keyword
  2. Binding that impacts the behavior of this keyword
  3. NEW keyword
  4. Arrow functions
  5. Classes
  6. Prototypes
  7. Prototypal Class
  8. Prototype Chain
  9. Prototype-based Inheritance
  10. Shadowing Prototypes
  11. Classical vs Prototype-based Inheritance

The object system is one of the strongest pillars of JavaScript, the other being the Scope system. The course goes in-depth to understand not only what these features are but also why certain features behave in such strange ways. The strangeness comes mostly from the fact that we all have learned different languages academically. And because the roots of the JS languages is derived from many other languages, it is interesting to see how certain things work differently(which makes them strange to us, hopefully not by the end of the course 🙂 )

 

By the end of this course, you will be equipped with a solid understanding of how the object system works in JavaScript. It will lead you to master other advanced concepts quite easily. It will also improve your ability in writing solid JS code that is concise and clear in intent.
