Event Pooling with WordPress
Of course, it’s not a perfect 1:1 match.
WordPress also has filters, besides actions, and a few other functions for controlling both. jQuery, on the other hand, gives you the possibility to bind an event to one or more elements on the page.
The important thing is that if you understand one system, you will easily comprehend the other. I guess this is another reason why jQuery is the prefered library for the WordPress admin.comments powered by Disqus
