Burlington JS Book Club: this & Object Prototypes

  • Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center

    60 Lake Street, Burlington, VT (map)

    44.477486 -73.219925

  • Do your this bindings sometimes behave unexpectedly? What are best practices for using constructors? Is JavaScript as a language suited for object-oriented programming, or should you avoid classes entirely and structure your code around prototype chains instead? Join us for an open discussion based on the _this & Object Prototypes_ volume in Kyle Simpson’s _You Don’t Know JavaScript_ series (a free online version is available at We’ll use the book as a jumping-off point, but it’s not required reading -- if you want to dive into the nuances of working with objects in JavaScript, come bring your questions, answers, opinions, and experiences to the conversation. Skill level: for anyone who wants to go beyond the basics.
