What is "this"

Matthew J. Morrison @mattjmorrison

Part of JavaScript’s charm and elegance stems from the fact that it works quite a bit differently than most other languages. The “this” keyword is one of the parts of JavaScript that seems to behave perhaps a bit differently than what might be expected. In addition to the “this” keyword, I will discuss execution contexts, the “new” operator, the call, apply and bind functions, and strict mode.
