.this - Not covered in the course

Hi folks,

While I am thoroughly enjoying the course, I suddenly get lost when an unknown syntax is used. Case in point, I realized that “.this” refers to the object in which we are operating. But this is not introduced properly in the course. I spent a lot of time trying to understand it.

Can someone add this to the course?

It is introduced in the lesson Make Code More Reusable with the this Keyword.

Then the problem is with sequence… .this has been used before it has been introduced. :slight_smile: !

Where has this been used before it was introduced?

I am seeing it in a couple of lessons in JavaScript ES6 module. I have shared once example -

of course ES6 comes before Object Oriented Programming in the course.
