Join us at our New York HQ in Tribeca to master object oriented programming in JavaScript, followed by Codesmith drinks and networking! To get the full experience we recommend coming onsite, however a live-stream will be available if you’re unable to make it.

This workshop will be a combination of live interactive lecture and pair programming through challenges, followed by networking and drinks! You will go under-the-hood of JavaScript, so you can confidently tackle new problems and work through blocks.

During this workshop we'll cover Object-Oriented Programming in JavaScript by going under the hood of OOP and the prototype chain.


- 4 approaches to object-oriented programming in JavaScript

- Prototype, __proto__ and the prototype chain

- Factories, constructors and classes

- ES5 and ES6 approaches

Price: Always free!
