Join us at our New York City HQ in Tribeca to master asynchronous JavaScript and promises, followed by Codesmith drinks and networking! To get the full experience we recommend coming onsite, however a live-stream will be available if you’re unable to make it.

This workshop will be a combination of live interactive lecture and pair programming through challenges, followed by networking and drinks! You will go under-the-hood of JavaScript, so you can confidently tackle new problems and work through blocks.

Our mental models of asynchronicity in javascript - the event loop, callback queue - are no longer enough. We have to augment them with the new world of native promises and async/await and understand them intuitively. In this session, we’ll do this so you can write readable code and debug effectively.

We will cover:

- The challenge with asynchronicity in JavaScript and how promises fix the problem of inversion of control

- Building a promise from scratch and understanding resolve, reject, then and done
