1.1 Introduction

Hi, my name is Jeremy McPeak, and I invite you to follow along as we write a web app without using any frameworks. Instead, we'll use classes, events, and object-oriented concepts to build a working RSS reader.

1.1 Introduction

JavaScript is an object oriented language obviously, and a lot of the tools and frameworks that we use today hide a lot of JavaScripts object orientedness. Which is really a shame, because a lot of work went into making object-oriented programming in JavaScript much easier, cleaner, and enjoyable than it used to be. Besides, sometimes it's nice to build an application without a massive framework to do the heavy lifting. Hi, my name is Jeremy McPeak. And I invite you to spend some time with me as I write an application without using any framework. We'll be using the new object oriented programming tools provided by the JavaScript language and modern browsers. Things like classes, sub classes, custom events, and things like that. We'll be writing a simple but functional RSS reader. Yes, people still use RSS even after Google killed the most excellent reader. I'm not bitter or anything. Well, we'll write traditional objects, but a lot of our code will be written as classes and sub-classes. We'll also make use of custom events, and you will learn object-oriented principles that you will want to apply to your applications. We have a lot of ground to cover. So when you're ready, queue up the next video, and we will get started.
