Deep Foundations Of Advanced JavaScript

Some Key Takeaways!

By coding along with us in the Workshop, you'll:

  • Why coercion is not only NOT a "bad part", but one of the overlooked keys to using the language more effectively
  • How the JS engine actually handles your code (hint: it compiles it!) and what that means for scope
  • What closure is really all about, and how it helps us with modular design
  • Which this is this this?
  • What the relationship is between prototypes and classes, and what delegation is all about

Workshop Details

Our goal is to fully understand not just what we do with JS but how it works. In fact, we'll learn to focus more of our learning effort on why and how than on what. That habit will pay off far beyond this class, no matter what you're learning.

Front end development has never been more powerful or expressive, with all the amazing tools, frameworks, and patterns available to choose from in such a vibrant and broad ecosystem. But the one key shared truth across all of it is: understanding JS deeply is the most important thing you can do to advance your development skills. You'll be better at React or Angular or Vue or Webpack or whatever else is the hot buzzword, if you invest your time to get better at JavaScript the language.

Daily Schedule

You get JavaScript, don't you? I mean, you can ship features, so you must understand JS well enough, right!?

The trouble is, if we're being honest, most of us have to admit that we write a lot of JS that we only partially understand. As long as it's not broken, we can usually get away with the pragmatism of “just enough". But when things go off the happy path, understanding the language more deeply is really the only hope we have of properly and effectively address the problem.

Is This Workshop for Me?


For the widely read and acclaimed book series "You Don't Know JS", I wanted to challenge readers to change their attitude and thinking about "knowing" the language, to be not just something to attain but rather an approach to pursue ongoing. This course is the perfect companion to those books, acting as a guide to get you started on that journey to know your JavaScript better.
