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.
