Object-Oriented JavaScript

via Udacity


This course is designed to teach web developers how to utilize the various object-oriented programming features within JavaScript. Object-oriented programming allows developers to build applications with reusable and maintainable blocks of code, which leads to efficiency and simplified software design.

With object-oriented JavaScript, you'll be able to build classes to construct objects that encapsulate both data and functionality. You'll also learn how to leverage prototypal inheritance to maintain DRY code, allowing you to pass behaviors down to objects. You'll also learn how to keep data safe and secure by creating private state with closures and immediately-invoked function expressions.


  • Objects in Depth
    • Create objects and add/remove properties to them,Write methods to access and mutate an object's properties,Learn how variables are properties on window
  • Functions at Runtime
    • Leverage functions as first-class functions,Identify when a scope is created,Utilize closures and IIFE's to build private state
  • Classes and Objects
    • Write a constructor function to instantiate objects,Identify and manually set the value of this,Implement prototypal inheritance
