What did you learn today?

Everyday teaches you something, some lesson or the other. Some day you learn a new language, a new skill or a new hobby or visit some new place, learn music, have a different dining experience, learn swimming, make some good friends, get in touch with some old friend etc. etc.... Each of these things teaches you something...

So, what did you learn today?
Some of the learnings from my past weeks are outlined below...
  • Respect others. Don't underestimate them. (Though I never consciously do so)
  • Be careful with your words because words have different meanings if the context is not clear.
  • Spend some time for your personal stuff and allow others do so.
  • Every individual is different, their skills different, their thoughts are different, their perceptions are different. So, be polite.
  • Time management. (This is a tough skill to master). At the end of the day I keep looking for more time so may be you.

So, again What did you learn today? This reflection is important because if you don't know what you are learning at every stage in your life, then your are not learning and not growing. In short you are not living. Learning is not memorization but it is self realization.....

JavaScript Function Spaghetti Code

In this post we will have a look at the spaghetti code created by functions and how to avoid them. First lets quickly go through why this is a cause of concern.


Problems with Function Spaghetti Code

Variables/ functions are added to the global scope
The code is not modular
There's potential for duplicate function names
Difficult to maintain
No namespace sense.
Let's take for example the following set of functions and check whats the issue with them.
// file1.js
function saveState(obj) {     // write code here to saveState of some object     alert('file1 saveState'); }
// file2.js (remote team or some third party scripts) function saveState(obj, obj2) {      // further code...     alert('file2 saveState"); }
Now the problem here is if your application is using saveState() then the execution of saveState() which one to call is determined by the script loading.  The later script overrides same functions already defined by earlier script.
For e.g.

If this script is refer…

JavaScript - The this keyword

"this" is one of the most misunderstood construct in JavaScript.  To understand this first lets go through how to create a construction function in JavaScript.  A constructor function is a function which is used to create instances of objects in JavaScript.

You define a constructor function using the same notation that you use to define a normal JavaScript function.  The convention to follow is to capitalize the first letter of the function name.

This requirement is not enforced by the JavaScript language but it is a generally accepted practice and there are many benefits which we will shortly discuss.

Let's define a constructor function to hold our menu information.

function Menu() { }
So, in the above snippet you have a constructor function named Menu defined. At present this function doesn't do anything good.

Let's see how to invoke this function

var menu = new Menu();
Let's add some public properties to this function.
function Menu() { this.menuName = &q…
