Some things you should know before moving on.

The JavaScript Event Loop

  • Why is JavaScript's asynchronous handling necessary in the browser environment?
  • What is a "Call Stack"?
  • What is a "Message Queue"?
  • How does JavaScript use its own message queue in conjunction with your browser's queues (via its APIs) to handle asynchronous methods?
  • How do you make a function execute asynchronously?
  • What actually happens when you use the setTimeout function?
  • What are "Event Listeners" in essence?
  • What actually happens when you register an event listener?
  • Why is using the onclick property of HTML elements considered bad practice?
  • Where are listeners stored?

Events

  • How do you attach an event listener using jQuery?
  • If you add a new element to the page after setting up some listeners, will it get a listener attached to itself too?
  • Why is it useful to delegate a listener to the element's parent instead?
  • What is "Event Bubbling" and why is it important?
  • If you click on a nested <div> which is listening for that click, does the event continue to bubble upwards to the enclosing <div> elements?
  • What is the "Event Handler"?
  • What is the "Event Object"?
  • How do you find the element which initially spawned the event?
  • Why might you want to stopPropagation of an event?
  • Why might you want to preventDefault for an event?
  • How do you delegate an event listener?
  • How is delegating an event listener to the parent often a better option than putting it directly on the children?
  • How do you manually trigger an event?
  • How do you remove an event handler from an object?

Callback Functions

  • Is a callback any different from a "handler"?
  • How do you know which arguments your callback should handle?
  • Why might you define an anonymous function as the callback instead of passing an already-existing named function?
  • What is the value of this inside a callback function for a jQuery click handler?
  • What is the value of this for any function you call inside that callback?

Effects

  • What is an "Effect"?
  • How do you show and hide an object?
  • What is a "Toggle"?
  • How do you pass a duration to an effect and why would you?
  • How do you fade an element in or out?
  • What does "Sliding" an element do?
  • Are animations synchronous or asynchronous?
  • What happens if you chain animations with normal jQuery functions?
  • What happens if you chain animations with other animations?
  • What's the problem with running too many or too complex animations?
  • How do you stop an animation mid-stream?
  • How do you delay animations?
  • What is the $.fx object and why is it useful?
  • What sorts of properties can be animated?
  • How do you animate an arbitrary CSS property?
  • What is "Easing"?
  • Why might using CSS for animations actually be better than using JavaScript?

Intervals and Timeouts

  • What is the difference between setInterval and setTimeout?
  • How do you stop an interval or timeout?
  • How do timeouts and intervals work with your browser on a conceptual level?

JS and jQuery Best Practices

  • Where are the jQuery docs located?
  • How can you figure out the differences between multiple ways of calling a method if they are all listed in the docs?
  • Why are you often allowed to pass objects instead of strings to jQuery methods?
  • Why should you modify CSS classes instead of directly modifying the inline CSS styles on an object?
