About this Course

Have you been dabbling with JavaScript but find your files keep turning into a mess of spaghetti code? Do you find yourself copying and pasting lines of code over and over throughout your application? Surely there’s a better way, right?

Yes, there is a better way -- object-oriented programming will allow you to build websites using reusable blocks of code known as libraries, similar to using bricks to build a house. This course is designed to teach web developers how to utilize the various object-oriented programming features within JavaScript, and more importantly, how to write reusable and maintainable libraries that will make your life easier.
