Stop breaking legacy code every time you expand your functions. Learn how to create robust functions that handle the needs of current, legacy, and future processing. Learn about handling DOM events with jQuery, then learn how to create your own custom events for objects that aren't on the DOM. Also, learn how to make use of the jQuery Deferred object to truly process AJAX requests in an asynchronous manner.

Hello. I'm Kevin Murray. In this Pluralsight training video, I'll be discussing using Advanced Techniques in JavaScript and jQuery.

Event Handling
In this segment we'll be discussing ways to attach event handlers to web page elements and process those events with jQuery.

Advanced Event Handling
In this segment we'll build upon the event handling topic of the previous segment. We'll look at ways to manage the event handler functions more efficiently and explore writing custom events.

Using jQuery Deferred Objects
I'm going to make use of jQuery deferred objects to eliminate the complexities associated with callback functions as demonstrated in the previous segment.
