*JavaScript Objects And Prototypes*

Much of the modern software development world runs on the
ideas of class-based, object oriented development paradigms.
These types of languages are sometimes called "classical"
or "classy" because they use a class-based inheritance
system to define objects. JavaScript is also object-oriented,
but is not a class-based language. Rather, JavaScript uses a
prototypal inheritance system where objects inherit from other

There's more to it than just objects inheriting from objects,
though. So join me as I explore and explain objects, prototypes
and prototypal inheritance in JavaScript. We'll walk through the
basics, how inhertance works, build a class-y inheritance framework
and more!
