    Follow-up note about strict mode (“use strict”;) and how it impacts using the JavaScript operator eval.

    Here’s and article: How to Call a JavaScript Function From a String Without Using eval

    The most valuable thing that I learnt last week was the several ways to attach an event handler. I find that the method addEventListener is a very nice way to make a page’s source code more readable and easily modified. I really like how a page content and structure can now be more separated from it’s style and code.

    After fast reading through the notes, for upcoming class, I’m looking forward to the drag and drop feature and brief explanation on JSON.

    The most valuable thing that I learned last week was seeing the separation of structure and behaviour in action, specifically with addEventListener. It was great to see how to implement functionality while following the principle of separating structure and function, and I am planning to code web pages this way from now on.

    I would like to learn more about web storage/localStorage, as I have heard a lot about it. It seems to be powerful/useful for adding functionality to web pages.

    most valuable thing from first session was using eventHandling to register events to my elements. Still trying to see how i can pass parameters in a more dynamic way. I can see the jquery has binding and that may be what i need to use for later….
