Course Title
Programming in Modern JavaScript

Objectives
JavaScript is one of the most ubiquitous and powerful languages, yet it's one of the languages that's largely misunderstood and underutilized. In JavaScript we can create objects, but that's different from how its done in OO languages. We can use inheritance, but that's prototypal inheritance, which is far more powerful and superior to class based inheritance in a number of ways. While programmers have in general struggled to use JavaScript to the fullest extent, the language itself has evolved considerably. This course covers both the breadth and width of the essential parts of modern JavaScript. Learn about prototypal inheritance, arrow functions, concise fluent syntax to create classes and properties, metaprogramming, annotations and more.
