Asynchronous Programming Patterns

Asynchronous Programming Patterns

Most JavaScript environments are fundamentally asynchronous. What does this mean? Tonight we talk about the perils and pitfalls of programming in an asynchronous runtime environment, why simple things like looping and returning from functions no longer work as advertised, and how to write programs and libraries that are "async-safe."

- Presented by Fredrick Polgardy

 

Space, food and refreshments will be provided by Enova Financial.

    A good, brief and practical explanation of one of the main misconception problems that most of developers have when starting with js

    It was a pretty straightforward lesson. I came in a little late so I didn't in what applications his patterns would be applicable, but I'm looking that up online now.

    I uploaded the Keynote file, and a pretty nice PDF rendering, to the More>Files area.

    Fred: I am looking forward to this talk. Will you be be discussing any particular JS libraries?

      The talk focuses primarily on the language and runtime. There won't be any deep discussion of 3rd party libs, but I will briefly talk about Deferreds and Async.js (https://github.com/cao...­).

    Is it possible to upload the discussion at youtube or other social network.

    Wow, we just broke 100! Can Enova handle a crowd that size?

      Not uncommon of late, although we haven't even hit the day-before reminder yet. Not everybody shows, but we fill out towards the back of the room (mic might be helpful), and it helps to have two food lines. We'll implement a limit when we find one.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
