Understanding scope in JavaScript

Understanding scope in JavaScript is key to writing good code. In some languages, this can be quite straightforward, but in JavaScript handling scope in your applications can sometimes become frustrating.

With this flash talk you will understand where variables/functions are accessible, be able to change the scope of your code’s context and be able to write faster and more maintainable code, as well as debug much faster.
