JavaScript: Getting Closure

A session at Web Directions Code

An in-depth look at how JavaScript’s first-class func­tions and lex­ical scope allow us to write power­ful and express­ive code. Through the single topic of imme­di­ately invoked func­tion expres­sions, we’ll touch upon func­tion scope, clos­ures, JavaS­cript “classes”, Cof­feeScript and ECMAScript 5.
