Objective

The primary objective of the session is to review aspects of the JavaScript language that tend to be somewhat rarely used but are immensely useful at the same time.

Description

The session will cover some JavaScript programming techniques that tend to be overlooked but are useful nonetheless. We will talk about functions, OO in JS, inheritance, reflection, closures, JSON and JS debugging or as much as we have time for! The idea is to have an interactive session geeking out on specific aspects of the language. Expect lots of on-screen experimentation and exploration of language quirks.

Requirements

Knowledge of JavaScript fundamentals.
