Speaking at DDD4

I did my first ever developer developer developer day talk on the weekend. I went as a delegate to the second one and thought it was a really great day so it was really exciting to go speak there.

I did a talk about developing objects in Javascript and talked about the basic things you need to create objects and classes. I particularly focused on using the prototype-based object model to share implementation across different objects.

I showed how to use constructor functions and the prototype property to make something that is like a class in a language like C# or VB.NET and how to do class inheritance. It’s all pretty neat stuff and makes Javascript a little more powerful than you’d expect at first glance.

My plan is to write all this stuff up into a few articles that I’ll post on my blog, but until then I’ve uploaded my slides and sample code.
