Taming asynchronous programming (beyond promises)

A session at mloc.js JavaScript Conference 2013

Friday 15th February, 2013

5:20pm to 6:05pm (CET)

JS developers must deal with asynchronous programming everyday. This is a complex subject and one of the most common causes of spaghetti code and hard to maintain code bases, specially if they are large. In this talk, I'll highlight the main problems of callback based programming, then we will discover that promises are not our last tool against asynchronous problems.

  • Continuation Passing Style (callback hell)
  • Some functional programming can help us
  • Promises
  • Promises are not silver bullets
  • Event Streams
  • FRP (a.k.a. Reactive Programming)
