Javascript Objects 101

Javascript Objects for Beginners

Javascript has a lot of overlooked potential as an object-oriented language, but it deserves a closer look. Today, we’ll be looking at literals, prototyping to extend existing objects, and last creating our own Javascript class. Get ready for some client-side, object-oriented fun!
