Today is the day of the funeral of one of my closest friends. He left us too soon and had impacted many lives around him.

I dedicate my drive to help making use of VR for alleviating depression and anxiety to him.

He is the reason why I decide to publish my thoughts on VR and mental health care potentials, rather than keeping them to myself like I did for those past few months: it drives me even more to getting out there and making it happen.

Why do I specify I am an aspiring “techie” and “writer” ? Because I believe tech can provide us with the tools to elevate consciousness. And while I am trying to help building those tools through programming, I…

More mermaids! The last part showed how to create and instantiate classes in 5 different ways (functional, functional-shared, prototypal, pseudo-classical and in ES6. In ES6, we have briefly covered subclasses, but not in totality. Here, I propose we take more time to show JavaScript’s different subclass patterns.

1. Functional-Shared Pattern

Remember how we would create a class -I’ve commented the steps:

1.a. Functional-shared class

You obviously first define the subclass - you pass the properties needed as the arguments, then set an object containing the parent object: as the name indicates — a sub-class “inherits” from the parent class’ properties and methods.That’s why you need to…

And with mermaids! -You’ll understand in a sec -

So, you might have heard that Classes in Javascript are “new” since ECMAScript 2015. But they’ve always been there. It’s just syntactical sugar for the old known prototype handling.

A class is basically a syntax for defining constructor functions and the prototype properties. But keep in mind -in JavaScript, classes are not the same as they are in other languages like Java. Java is class-based; JavaScript is prototype-based. For example, JavaScript prototypes can be redefined at runtime, and has immediate effect for all referring objects, while Java classes cannot be redefined…

“Women in Tech: What We Don’t Say” (4rth April 2018) @Plexal

I had the pleasure to discuss “Women in Tech: What We Don’t Say” at Plexal, alongside Naomi Bottrill (founder of Love Language), Lu Li (Founder of Blooming Founders), and Nneka Chukwurah ( Economy of Hours). Plexal is launching Plexiglass, newest accelerator in East London, focused on women-led companies. Thank you Claire Cockerton, CEO of Plexal, Hannah Grace Jarvis and Nikita Vervelde (JV Partners), for your extraordinary dedication to bringing women into Tech.
