Extending Objects with JavaScript

I have been a fan of JavaScript for quite some time, but mostly as an outsider looking in. I feel like I understand many of the concepts and can be fairly dangerous, but recently I have made it a point to really learn this stuff inside and out.

It didn’t take long before I realized that object extension is very powerful in dynamic languages and JavaScript pretty damn good at this. Here are my notes on extending objects in JavaScript with various frameworks:

  1. Extending Objects in jQuery
  2. Extending Objects in Ext JS
  3. Extending Objects in Dojo
  4. Extending Objects in Underscore

I hope this series of posts is helpful to you too. If not, leave me some feedback and I can modify it to better, thanks!

Oh hey, I'm a Senior Consultant for Headspring in Austin, TX. I've been working in software professionally since 2006 and I really, really love it. I'm mostly in the Microsoft world, but enjoy building computer things of all sorts (to be vague). When I'm not slinging code, I'm probably out and about slinging discs, bowling balls, or good beer with great friends.
