This meetup will be very hands on, no talk - just talking, thinking, coding and sharing.

Since ES6 there is the new keyword `class`. We will start out discussing how it works, it's pros and cons so that we also get a wider understanding of it. We will focus on how it works, how it might be implemented and how it used to be done.

After the discussion we will write some code 1) using the keyword `class`, 2) using prototypes manually and 3) without explicitly working on the prototype. If our discussion before brings up another possibility to build classes we might try that out too.

Basically we are looking under the hood of classes. This is not going to be focused on OO as such, but on the technology behind the various approaches on classes in JavaScript.
