Async.js, a JavaScript Control Flow Library

On February 20, 2012, I gave a talk on Async.js to the joint meetup of Node.DC and DC jQuery.

Async.js is a control flow library that provides great abstractions for writing serial, parallel, and combined asynchronous code without ending up in the dreaded trenches of nested callback insanity.

My presentation is available live on GitHub, and uses Impress.js for Prezi-like functionality in the browser. As a consequence, it might not render in older browsers and IE. My talk covers the basic abstractions:

  • Series
  • Waterfalls
  • Parallel
  • Collections

and more, so check it out and feel free to ping me with any questions or comments!
