NCDevCon 2015 Session-Object-Oriented JavaScript (yes, it really exists)

Object-Oriented JavaScript (yes, it really exists)

What's that you say? You don't like working in JavaScript because you can't code like you want to with capital "O" Objects all over the place? Sure you can. More and more people are starting to realize how powerful this little language can be. Start your re-education with this session and learn all about OOP in JS. First, we have to accept that while JavaScript may exhibit some characteristics of a functional language, it is really a multi-paradigm language with strong support for Object-Oriented Programming concepts. This talk will give attendees a crash course in Object-Oriented JavaScript covering: * core OOP principles * the prototype object and constructors * member access types (public, private, & privileged) * prototypical inheritance * interfaces (mixins) Developers will come out of this session ready to implement core OOP concepts in JavaScript, with knowledge of how inheritance in JavaScript differs from many of the other languages they know.
