Understanding JavaScript Prototypes

Understanding JavaScript Prototypes. | JavaScript, JavaScript….

I’ll stand behind my admittance that my first exposure and usage of JavaScript was back when we copied and pasted from DHTML websites to make suckerfish menus I could barely customize because I didn’t know what I was doing. Then jQuery came to be and I actually started doing things on purpose. That was a few years ago and it took me almost that long to really want to get serious about JavaScript. Over the past few years the world as a whole has fully embraced JavaScript as an amazing platform upon which great software can be written. It all comes down to the awesome quirkiness of JavaScript under the hood, and a lot of that has to do with JavaScript Prototypes.
