JavaScript - The Hard Parts: Closure, Scope & Execution Context

This week we continue our mini-series: JavaScript - The Hard Parts. We will cover closure, scope, and execution context - one of the toughest concepts in JavaScript. 

These are concepts that 80% of JavaScript engineers do not understand, and yet they are at the core of every single successful application.

We will cement these concepts by working to understand their essence and by pair-programming through different coding problems.

You’ll learn via “real life” examples in a project tutorial format: By the end of the course, you’ll complete an advanced prototype of an ecommerce website. You’ll get a tutorial document for taking notes and referring back to later in your own projects. Later you can also use the official completed project Axure file to investigate how something was built, learn from it, and reuse elements.
