SkillsCast

The evolution of asynchronous Javascript

17th October 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Asynchronous JS & Error Handling with React/Redux

One of JavaScript’s strengths is how it handles asynchronous programming. Async is one of the most important and often misunderstood part of Javascript or any other language. Async is hard because we, as human beings, can’t do two conscious actions at once and think about both of them at the same moment. In this talk we will see how asynchronous JavaScript evolved over the years. It all started with callbacks… and it landed on generators!
