This session is to help you understand scope in JavaScript and manage your event handling.

Events are the lifeblood of any JavaScript application. To get them to work, you must have a good understanding of scope, context, event types, and event bubbling.

My goal is to help those unfimiliar with those concepts have a new appreciation for what they mean and, hopefully, be able to write your own JavaScript code and patterns into your Drupal site with ease and consistency.

This class is for you if you:

  • Are a PHP developer wanting to learn more JavaScript
  • Have written¬†some JavaScript in the past, but aren't real sure how you got there
  • Want to brush up on your jQuery and JavaScript and want a more mantainable approach to writing JavaScript
  • Are a jQuery developer and don't know about the $.proxy method
