FCC Zipline Series 104: Build a JavaScript Calculator | The JS Way

Today, we are going to be building a calculator app using vanilla JavaScript . No jQuery or other third party libraries/frameworks involved. I’m even going to make it more complicated by using objects and prototypical inheritance, so do not expect a quick and dirty job. Here’s a demo of what we’ll be building.
