Leveraging jQuery's Special Events API

A session at JSConf US 2012

Tuesday 3rd April, 2012

3:30pm to 3:45pm (MST)

The jQuery JavaScript library has become a household item in the web development community. It allows for simple event binding, DOM manipulation, and asynchronous requests. Many developers know they can extend jQuery using their simple plugin development process ... but did you also know that jQuery is extensible in other ways as well? We will focus on extending jQuery's event system via the Special Events API in order to create our own custom bindable events, such as "multiclick", "textSelect", and "swipe".
