Why Prototypal Inheritance Matters

Published: 26 May 2013 | Comments

Five days ago I wrote Standardizing Harmony Classes. It showed how to simulate classes in current JavaScript implementations and how ECMAScript Harmony classes are just syntactic sugar for the same. My programming style has evolved since then, thanks to Om Shankar and the awesome members of the JavaScript Room; and like Douglas Crockford did back in 2006, I too have learned to fully embrace prototypalism.
