What is 'this'? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

schedule Dec 7th 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM place Blue Room people 69 Interested

Have you ever wondered what _this_ actually is, and how it relates to other JavaScript black magic, like prototypes or the _new_ keyword? Many frameworks have been designed to hide you from needing to fully understanding this and many related concepts.

In this session, Jake will dive into all of the above and will also cover how the new ES2015 language features like arrow functions, keywords like let, const and classes with constructor functions which make dealing with _this_ much easier to understand.

You will leave this session with a better understanding of JavaScript fundamentals to make the most out of its growing ecosystem.
