JavaScript Interactive Web Pages with JavaScript Selecting Elements and Adding Events with JavaScript Perform: Event Handling

I'm not fond of the MDN documentaion...

I would rather have a separate course on it than having it interspersed into the lesson. It feels to me like it breaks up the flow. I just start getting really exited about the lesson...than we skip to the MDN. What could be a 15 second explanation of event handlers turns into a 5 minute romp through the web entangled waters from people that are a lot smarter than me explaining things in a way that I just don't get. I can go to w3c and in a minute get practical example of how to do things. I just like that better. I get that MDN is more technical and probably down the road may be needed for more in-depth topics. For the tasks we are doing, I'd rather just do them and see how they work. Thank you andrew for all your wonderful expertise. Love you.

The best and most efficient tools are the ones you are used to use. Stick with W3C if that does the job, and for those times it doesn't then try MDN or something else.
