JavaScript is a prototype-oriented language. But for many, what this really means or how it actually works is a little fuzzy. It seems, that as quickly as you learn how prototypes work behind the scenes, as quickly do you forget it again. If you can relate to this feeling, this talk is for you. We'll dive into why JavaScript is a prototype-oriented language instead of class-based and what that means for you as a developer. You'll learn exactly how prototypal inheritance works in JavaScript - in a way that's easy to remember - so that you can become a better programmer. Finally, you'll learn about the security pitfalls that exist in the way prototypal inheritance is implemented in JavaScript and how to write more secure code to avoid those pitfalls.
