NashJS: Mastering Async - Promises and Control Flow

Emma's Bistro Cafe
11 Lea Ave
Nashville, TN 37210, US (map)



We spend a lot of time waiting in JavaScript. We wait for images to load, for the DOM to be ready, for the server to send us a response. As our applications grow, all this waiting quickly becomes a burden. The code we write gets uglier and harder to scale.

In this talk, we'll discuss common pitfalls surrounding asynchronous programming in JavaScript. We'll learn what promises are and how they can make waiting easier. And together we'll write a new control flow library, backed by the power of promises, that enables us to improve our code and master async behavior.

Presentation by Pachet.
