Title: Async/Await in JavaScript on AWS Lambda

Speaker: Todd Price

PART 1: Still stuck in callback hell? Not excited about the promise of Promises? With Node 8.x you can move to Async/Await and dramatically improve your code's readability while cutting down on the number of lines you need to write. PART 2: Need to run in an environment stuck in Node 6.x such as AWS Lambda? Use Babel to write Node 8.x style code and compile to Node 6.x.

BIO:
Todd Price has been a professional developer since 1997, working as a consultant, an IT executive, and a startup CTO. He considers himself pretty darn good at JavaScript, AWS cloud services, relational databases, and web front end development. His latest venture, Page Vault, is becoming the de-facto standard for capturing web content for use as evidence in court. When he's not writing or slinging code, he can often be found creating music or wrestling with dogs.
