This design pattern conforms the base of many other ones. Usually it is the first pattern that people learn because is one of the simplest.

So, what this is all about? Well, this pattern plays with the idea of creation process, mostly of objects. You know, in Javascript there is a few ways to create things, like:

var thisIsMyObject = new Object();
var thisIsAnotherObject = {};
var thisIsMyThirObject = Object.create(null); // we will use this in the future  

In the above example we just create an empty object, without any properties.

Now, how can we add some props to this new object? Let’s check some ways:

var houseOfGameOfThrones = new Object(); // we create the object

// First way = "Baratheon"; // we assign a property called name
console.log(; // this is one way to access the property

// Second way
houseOfGameOfThrones["numberOfDeathsInBooks"] = "About five";
console.log(houseOfGameOfThrones["numberOfDeathsInBooks"]); // this is another way to access the property

// Third way. ATTENTION: Only for ECMASCRIPT 5 browsers/servers
Object.defineProperty(houseOfGameOfThrones, "actualLeader", {
    configurable: true,
    writable: true,
    enumerable: true,
    value: "'s complicated",

// Fourth way. Very similar to third, but for multiple properties:
Object.defineProperties(houseOfGameOfThrones, {
        "numberOfHeirs": {
            value: "Who nows",
            writable: true
         "previousLeader": {
            value: "Rober Barateon",
            writable: false

Again, we can use different approaches to make properties. But remember that the third and the fourth way can only be used on ECMASCRIPT 5 compatible browsers and servers. Yeah, I know, they are a little verbose, but they are veeery impressive and you can use them to make your app more easy to follow when it has multiple objects.
