JavaScript on the Go: Async

Instructor: Sasha Vodnik

It’s no secret that JavaScript spends a lot of time bouncing information back and forth. Regardless of what you’re interacting with in your code base, calling and waiting is a big part of your job. But you don’t have time to just stop what you’re doing—you need to know asynchronous code, or async, if you want to maintain your workflow. Join author and developer Sasha Vodnik as he explores the power of using async to build more efficient and manageable code in JavaScript applications.

Get an overview of async, what it does, how it functions, and how it affects—and can optimize—the flow of an application. Learn about multithreading, the JavaScript event loop, and when and how to deploy Java workers to solve complex problems concurrently. Sasha gives you tips on identifying when your code needs to be in async, with examples drawn from common scenarios and best practices to implement along the way.
