Safer event handling with jQuery namespaced events

Safer event handling with jQuery namespaced events | 456 Berea Street.

This is really a fantastic tip and something I’ve been bitten with before as well. Writing open source software is really a fantastic way to throw yourself in the deep end when trying to adhere to best practices. For those of you like me who haven’t really worked on a ‘large’ team where those best practices come into play every day it’s really easy to fall into bad habits that can make big trouble down the line. When you’re writing open source bits of code like jQuery plugins you’ll quickly hear what could be improved about it, and that’s a good thing.
