Listening to and responding to events is a foundational skill for building software for the web. The Document Object Model, or DOM for short, has a powerful built-in event system. And yet, many of us have a pretty basic understanding of the DOM event system and only scratch the surface of the available power.
This lack of understanding leads to bugs in our applications and writing lots of code to work around the DOM event system rather than leveraging it. The goal of the course is that you will walk away with the confidence to successfully and meaningfully engage with the DOM event system.
The DOM Event Visualizer
The DOM event visualizer domevents.dev will be used to explain many behaviors throughout the course. You are welcome to play with the visualizer yourself to continue your learning.
