Asynchronous JavaScript is everywhere, whether you’re using Ajax, AngularJS, Node.js, or WebRTC. This practical guide shows intermediate to advanced JavaScript developers how Promises can help you manage asynchronous code effectively—including the inevitable flood of callbacks as your codebase grows. You’ll learn the inner workings of Promises and ways to avoid difficulties and missteps when using them. The ability to asynchronously fetch data and load scripts in the browser broadens the capabilities of JavaScript applications. But if you don’t understand how the async part works, you’ll wind up with unpredictable code that’s difficult to maintain. This book is ideal whether you’re new to Promises or want to expand your knowledge of this technology. Understand how async JavaScript works by delving into callbacks, the event loop, and threading Learn how Promises organize callbacks into discrete steps that are easier to read and maintain Examine scenarios you’ll encounter and techniques you can use when writing real-world applications Use features in the Bluebird library and jQuery to work with Promises Learn how the Promise API handles asynchronous errors Explore ECMAScript 6 language features that simplify Promise-related code

JavaScript is a tool for the gurus who create highly useful applications, but it has some limitations. To overcome these limitations, a concept called JavaScript promises is rising rapidly in popularity. Promises makes writing complex logics more manageable and easy. This book starts with an introduction to JavaScript promises and how it has evolved over time. You will learn the JavaScript asynchronous model and how JavaScript handles asynchronous programming. Next, you will explore the promises paradigm and its advantages. Finally, this book will show you how to implement promises in platforms used in project development including WinRT, jQuery, and Node.js.

No matter how much experience you have with JavaScript, odds are you don’t fully understand the language. As part of the "You Don’t Know JS" series, this compact guide focuses on new features available in ECMAScript 6 (ES6), the latest version of the standard upon which JavaScript is built. Like other books in this series, You Don’t Know JS: ES6 & Beyond dives into trickier parts of the language that many JavaScript programmers either avoid or know nothing about. Armed with this knowledge, you can achieve true JavaScript mastery. With this book, you will: Learn new ES6 syntax that eases the pain points of common programming idioms Organize code with iterators, generators, modules, and classes Express async flow control with Promises combined with generators Use collections to work more efficiently with data in structured ways Leverage new API helpers, including Array, Object, Math, Number, and String Extend your program’s capabilities through meta programming Preview features likely coming to JS beyond ES6

JavaScript ASYNC

Events, Callbacks, Promises and ASYNC Await

Asynchronous programming is essential to the modern web and at last JavaScript programmers have the tools to do the job - the Promise object and the async and await commands. These are so elegant in their design that you need to know about them if only to be impressed. It is likely that other languages will incorporate similar facilities in the future. While async and await make asynchronous code as easy to use as synchronous code there are a lot of subtle things going on and to really master the situation you need to know about Promises and you need to know how the JavaScript dispatch queue works. Written for experienced JavaScript developers who want to get to grips with the complexities of the language, JavaScript Async guides you through the story of async. It starts with Events, which is where asynchronous programming originates, but it quickly becomes apparent that you need additional ways of dealing with long running tasks. The most basic solution is the callback and this is where async programming starts to become difficult. JavaScript used to be a single-threaded language, but with the introduction of the Web Worker you can write multi-threaded programs. Promises are the pinnacle of async programming in JavaScript and putting them together with the dispatch queue provides further advances. The way that async and await work with Promises is nothing short of amazing. The book concludes with a look at how async and await integrate with some of the latest JavaScript APIs that are based on the Promise object. The Service Worker is possibly the biggest change in the way JavaScript can be used to create programs that are just as happy being offline as online. Working with async can be confusing and disorienting, but by combining code examples and lucid explanations Ian Elliot presents a coherent explanation. If you want to work with async read this book first.
