I’ve found that articulating my disdain for classical object-oriented inheritance models after a decade of experience does not sit well with the typical interviewer, whose questions seem to come from the top three links of a Google search.

Eric Elliott (pictured) serves up some provocative reasoning about classical OO within Javascript at the link below. He ends up promoting his Stampit library for OO programming, but that doesn’t make what he’s saying less important.

Dan Abramov is more conciliatory in How to Use Classes and Sleep at Night. He basically provides rules on how to minimize misuse of the ES6 class.

(To clarify, the only great, maintainable use-case I’ve found for the OO hierarchy is for application life-cycle support.)
