Office Hour with Martha Kelly Girdler

East Lounge (Table B)

Join Martha and chat about all things related to the JS interpreter! When you understand how JS creates and executes function objects, you can better leverage JS. We’ll cover a few of the most popular topics/questions as well as have an informal Q/A.

Example topics: How ‘this’ is defined, how function objects are created and executed, why globals are implicit, how scope is defined, and how/why runtime affects everything

Hope to see you there!
