A Beginner's Guide to JavaScript's Prototype

You can’t get very far in JavaScript without dealing with objects. They’re foundational to almost every aspect of the JavaScript programming language. In this post you’ll learn about a variety of patterns for instantiating new objects and in doing so, you’ll be gradually led to understanding JavaScript’s prototype in depth.

It may seem surprising, but in my opinion the most important and fundamental concept to understanding the JavaScript language is understanding Execution Context. In this video you’ll not only learn all about Execution Contexts, but also more advanced JavaScript topics like hoisting, the scope chain, and closures.
