Concurrency for Web Developers

by Brandon Ly | at Minnebar 18 | 2:50 – 3:35 in Harriet | View Schedule

If you've worked with JavaScript at all, then you've most likely written asynchronous code. JavaScript is well known for handling concurrency with it's single-threaded event loop. It's commonly used to handle asynchronous API requests, reading and writing to files, all without blocking the main thread.

We'll be discussing different ways concurrency benefits web developers outside of common use cases, and we'll also discuss pitfalls when using synchronous I/O methods in Node.js. This presentation will be from the perspective of both frontend and backend development, specifically with JavaScript.
