Asynchronous programming is often new and confusing when first learning JavaScript. In this course, JavaScript Promises and Async Programming, you’ll gain the ability to handle async programming in JavaScript. First, you’ll explore consuming promises. Next, you’ll discover creating your own promises. Finally, you’ll learn how to use async/await to handle asynchronous programming. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of JavaScript promises needed to handle asynchronous code.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Nate Taylor, and welcome to my course, JavaScript Promises and Async Programming. I am a solution architect at Aviture in Omaha, Nebraska. JavaScript Promises are a powerful solution to working with asynchronous programming; however, they can also be intimidating to learn, but they don't have to be. In this course, we're going to cover everything you need to know to begin working with promises and Async/Await in JavaScript. Some of the major topics that we will cover include asynchronous programming, consuming and creating promises, and using Async/Await in JavaScript. By the end of this course, you'll know how to work with promise-based libraries, as well as how to wrangle asynchronous code by creating your own promises. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic JavaScript syntax. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn promises, with the JavaScript Promises and Async Programming course, at Pluralsight.
