Wednesday, July 27, 2022 - 3:30 PM UTC, for 1 hour.

AT THAT (In-Person Only) Regular, 60 minute presentation

Room: African 50

In this talk, Raymond will talk about how to handle asynchronous code in JavaScript applications. He'll demonstrate the problems you encounter, the older style solutions (callbacks), and show how to use promises and async/await to make your code easier to work with. This will be a beginner's level topic with a focus on *practical* use cases but will wrap up with links to more solutions and advanced discussion.


Some minor experience in JavaScript, basic understanding of the syntax.

Take Aways

  • What asynchronous events are in JavaScript
  • How callbacks helped... and hurt...
  • How Promises helped....
  • How Async/Await made things super cool (if a bit hard at times)
