Home Forums JavaScript Everything is an Object? Reply To: Everything is an Object?


Well I can’t say that was a very helpful article for someone starting to get familiar with jquery and wanting to crack the nut that is javascript. Because if I could have understood Todd Motto, I wouldn’t have needed to ask the question.

At this point (a year later), I’ve been studying javascript, building stuff, and it is all a lot clearer, although I’m no expert. If else wants to know why “everything is an object”, I’d recommend Cody Lindley’s book Javascript Enlightenment. This is a short book, but well written for beginning to intermediate programmers.
