Using JavaScript OLOO in game development (The Course)

Course Info

This course includes 10 attempts.

Zero(!) programming experience is the best ... so that you won't confuse JavaScript to other classical OOP languages. However, if you are familiar with OOP, then this will be an "eye-opening roller-coaster" experience as you meet JavaScript as it was intended -- a Prototype-based language with delegated "inheritance".
