In Defense of JavaScript Classes

I think your post makes the false assumption that classes will be the one feature to rule them all. Classes won’t provide any more consistency than what’s already out there. People won’t start exclusively using classes, and they most certainly won’t rewrite their applications using them. Instead, classes will only be another part of that list of patterns you mentioned. And hey, if server side devs don’t want to get into JavaScript because it doesn’t have classes, it’s their loss. Learning a language requires learning idioms, whether it’s JavaScript or Java, whether it has classes or not.
