Object-Oriented JavaScript

Slides and materials are hosted here.

Course description

In this workshop, you'll learn the principles of Object-Oriented programming and how you can apply those principles in JavaScript to architect your code better. Understanding that will help your code as it gets larger, and is a crucial skill for using JS in a large codebase, like at a company.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises in pairs, and will be taught by [teacher X, tiny bio]. This is a great follow-up workshop for those who have attended our JS intro workshop.


Attendees should be comfortable with JavaScript fundamentals (arrays, conditionals, loops, functions). That means that you either attended our JS 101 workshop or you learned those concepts online.

You can review them online at a few places:

Tech requirements:

  • Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay) and charger.
  • A modern web browser - either Chrome or Firefox.
  • A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 2 (free; available for both Mac and PC) or Notepad++ (PC).

Topics covered:

  • Object instances, properties, methods
  • Using .prototype for OO in JS
  • Extending objects
