Embrace THIS - Javascript Workshop


`this` is one of the hardest topics for beginners in javascript.
Even seasoned developers occasionally get stuck in the mud
of `this` resolution mechanics.

There are tons of great books, articles and video lessons that
try to outline and explain how `this` works, but what if we could
get the best and distilled parts of all of those wonderful resources
and set a clear mental model on how to reason about `this`
and get it right 10/10 times no matter how nested and confusing is the code.

And all of this in a friendly live workshop session.

If that sounds interesting then you should definitely check this workshop
and hit that RSVP btn.

Even if you think you know `this`, try it, you might find out
some new things on the way, because we gonna go deep...
