Async/Await: Making JavaScript Promises Friendly

JavaScript Logo

A key feature in the ES2016 update was the Async / Await method as explained in the video at the bottom of this entry.

“Async functions are enabled by default in Chrome 55 and they're quite frankly marvelous. They allow you to write promise-based code as if it were synchronous, but without blocking the main thread. They make your asynchronous code less “clever” and more readable...

Once async functions land across all browsers, use them on every promise-returning function! Not only do they make your code tidier, but it makes sure that function will always return a promise...

I got really excited about async functions back in 2014, and it's great to see them land, for real, in browsers. Whoop!”

There was a big turnout at the April 2018 SeattleJS meetup and I'm looking forward to attending meetups in the future. I really enjoyed the presentation about the history of ECMAScript and one given about Web Accessibility, and who doesn't like free pizza and beer!

I'm really excited to attend the SeattleJS monthly meet-up and conference, an event that happens every second Thursday of the month. It will be my first appearance at a tech conference and I hope to make a good first impression on the other attendees.

SeattleJS is Seattle's largest JavaScript conference. There are scheduled to be two presentations at the meet-up occuring April 12: the first is titled A Journey to the Center of the ECMAVerse and will be given by Jacob Friedmann, the second is titled The Winding Trail of Thought on Coding Challenges: A Story of Getting It Done by Adron Hall.

Reflections as a Student at Treehouse

The Art Institutes

I can honestly say that my experience learning web development technical skills with Treehouse has been nothing short of enlightening. Treehouse does a remarkable job in presenting its material in a clear and concise fashion. In a relatively short amount of time I went from knowing nothing about the subject to being fairly competent in my ability to take an idea from its inception and systematically improve upon it until it becomes a project that looks and functions as I intended.
