Writing "bad" JavaScript is easy. Fortunately, writing "good" JavaScript is not too much harder. In this course, I will show you tried and true design patterns to help structure and organize your code to make your JavaScript code more readable and maintainable. I will walk you through the different ways to work with and manipulate objects in JavaScript. We will look at the tried and true gang of four design patterns and how to implement those patterns in JavaScript and AngularJS.

Course Overview
Hey everyone. I'm John Mills. I'm a consultant that deals mostly with JavaScript and process and people management. I've been doing JavaScript for quite a while now and I come from a. NET and Java background. And what's always amazing to me is when I have object-oriented developers who do really good. NET and Java code, move over to JavaScript, and lose all that object-oriented knowledge and start writing very procedural JavaScript code. And in this course, I'm going to try and undo some of that and show you how to properly implement good, solid, object-oriented development styles into JavaScript. We'll take a look at objects in JavaScript and why they're different. And then we'll move into the full Gang of Four design patterns and we'll look at what those look like in the JavaScript ecosystem. We'll look at creational design patterns and structural, and then, even behavioral, just so that you can get a good solid understanding of how to adapt your JavaScript code to be much more object-oriented.
