JavaScript Simplified: Closures, Prototypes, Promises, and more

Nov 15, 2016 · Torrance, United States of America

Interested in advanced JavaScript topics? In this talk we’ll look at JavaScript concepts including closures, promises and prototypical inheritance. These will be gently introduced with real world examples & lots of code. You will learn how to use these features and when it’s appropriate to. Take your JavaScript skills to next level! 

We'll start with JavaScript functions and get a fundamental understanding of how they work and what Functions as a first class citizen means. We'll look at how Closures can give you a mechanism for hiding data and also protect your variables from the global scope via immediately involved functions. 
Inheritance is possible with JavaScript and we'll look at how you can do that with prototypes. Promises give you a great mechanism to write cleaner asynchronous code. We'll look at promises from the eye of a library writer and consumer. We'll see how promises can help us avoid ugly nested callbacks and make our code easier to read. We'll also see how promises are implemented in libraries like jQuery and AngularJS.
