I'm a naturally curious hardworker. I love exploring how perception is shaped by the details we encounter and using this to craft smoother encounters and more intuitive tools.

I'm a UX designer looking for any opportunity to hone my craft.

If you are interested in working with me, you can find my portfolio and resume on my website.

comment javascript - setting global variables inside a function
The link in Ted Hoop's answer explains that. The value of a primitive is the simply the value of the primitive, while value of an object is a reference to the object. Therefore it CAN be accessed by the function.

comment javascript - setting global variables inside a function
Oh, now I get it. The post you linked to was exactly what I was trying to figure out. Technically, it is correct that all variables are passed by value in JavaScript. However, practically, the value of an object/array is a reference to the object/array. Which means that an object can indeed by changed by a function in a way that a primitive cannot.

comment javascript - setting global variables inside a function
Wait, so, if setting variable equal to "hello world" does not change the value of things, why does making things an object and setting variable.property equal to "hello world" change the value of things.property?
