Classes Are Premature Optimization
Recorded at:

by Justin Love on Feb 10, 2011 |

Justin Love discusses the difference between the classic OOP programming model based on classes and prototypal inheritance built on objects as done in JavaScript, and how they affect performance.


Justin Love's creed is, in part "To tease order from disorder. To make right what is wrong and make a visible difference in the lives of people I care about." Justin left a steady job in embedded software and IT support for the wild blue yonder. He is an analytical artist and martial artist who presents regularly at ChicagoRuby and JS.chi user groups.
