Hey Alex, just thought you might want to know that you can embed your videos directly in dev.to with this syntax:

Hey Alex nice vedio. In the video i saw the u were trying to get the event.target like this el.addEventListner("click", console.log(event.target))
But did not work. To make it work just pass {target} to console without event.
