0:15 Also, I just have often seen many of these concepts trip up developers today, especially in education scenarios or during interviews. My hope is that I can save you from a lower salary offer, not getting a job, debugging a difficult code base, and help you write cleaner code.
0:32 Some of the concepts I cover in this course includes using the this keyword, how to do so implicitly and explicitly. We'll talk about the power of coercion and why it's not something to be afraid of or avoided at all costs.
1:03 Then we'll take this further and explore the concept of autoboxing. This answers that non-burning question of why are we able to treat primitive types as objects? We talk about the prototype chain, the new keyword and what the difference is between a function's .prototype property and the .protoproperty that live in object types.
