ES6 Generators

  • February 6, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Gerred Dillon will speak about ES6 generators

The past few years have held a lot in terms of handling callback hell within Node. From simple, pure callbacks and event emitters to advanced techniques such as promises and streams, a lot of energy has been placed into hiding the ugly insides of Node's evented nature. An end is now in sight: co-routines or generators provide a level of abstraction that allows code to look synchronous and implement simple, easy-to-follow flow control. Everything from lazy sequences to advanced web frameworks all become possible far easier than ever before. This talk will be an introduction and deep-dive on generators, how to use them today, and a successor to Express (Koa.js) that looks to leverage this feature for all it is worth.

Pizza and Drinks @ 6:30pm and Talk start at 7pm

    First, the talk was great. I really enjoyed it and thanks David for explaining some of the steps to me. Second, is anybody looking for new opportunities doing js UI development? We have quite a few.

    If you've got 2 hours worth then bring it on with a 20 minute intermission.

      I too suggest an intermission if the talk is scheduled for much over an hour

      That would be the intent - though I don't think it'll be 2 hours. We'll play it by ear.

    Let me ask a question for everybody -

    Does everybody want a 2 hour deep-dive or me to pack it into 1 hour?

    'February' is kind of a vague description - what's going to be happening?

    A request. I'd like more lower level talks. I don't do this every day all day like you guys. Many of these talks are too high level.

      Hopefully this one will suit your taste a bit more :)
