The Promised Land: Untangling Async Spaghetti Code

A session at O'Reilly Fluent Conference 2012

Thursday 31st May, 2012

11:50am to 12:30pm (PST)

"I love async, but I can't code like this." It's the refrain of JavaScript newcomers everywhere as event-driven code devolves into a mess of nested callbacks. Is single-threaded code sustainable in a multi-tasking, multi-core world? This talk answers that question with an emphatic "yes," thanks to a few simple techniques—most notably Promises.
