In this tutorial we are introduced to Events in JavaScript. We start with a presentation that discusses events and how we can have them triggered in JavaScript. The first demonstration is focused on the HTML Event Handler, this is no longer a recommended approach but many developers are still using this approach. Next we demonstrate the DOM Event Handler method which is a much more efficient approach to the Event Handlers in JavaScript. We close out the tutorial demonstrating the Event Listener method. This is the best approach but is only supported on the most recent browsers.
