Asynchronous JavaScript (Part 1): Livin' On A Prayer

There is a unique world where Single-Threaded JavaScript manages to be much more. JavaScript interacts with its environment in ways that allow it to handle Asynchronous activities. Using several detailed code examples, we will examine these examples in a unique way to show how these interactions truly work.

This talk has been also called, "JavaScript Enjoys Your Tears" and "Lip Sync To The Async". If you are an experienced developer or new to the field, there is something in this presentation for you.

This session takes a look at how JavaScript manages Asynchronous events and some of the ways developer decisions may work for, or against them.

This discussion will examine the ways that JavaScript coordinates and manages events using several coding examples and we can determine which are the good, the bad, and ... the ugly.

"JavaScript Enjoys Your Tears" is an apt title, but does not clearly describe what this talk is about.

"Lip Sync to the Async in JavaScript" was a good title, but had a better one recommended recently.

JavaScript OBVIOUSLY handles Asynchronous activity AND the various engines are Single-Threaded. This talk will examine many of the Asynchronous events and how they are actually handled through the live execution of code.

This talk is one of the most exciting I have ever given. EVERYONE, from the non-programmer to the JavaScript Gurus, has gotten something out of it.

This is a VERY STRONG talk and deserves to be presented at an appropriate venue.
