Generating a new async workflow... with generators!

30 minute advanced seminar


Node v0.12.0, Firefox, and Chrome have all added basic support for generators, but this area of JavaScript is still shrouded in mystery and inexperience. Generators allow developers to create much simpler asynchronous workflows and avoid callback hell without the need for a ton of complex structures such as Promises. In this session we'll dive into generators and the yield keyword to show attendees what they are, and more importantly why they should care! We'll look at some use cases and see just how these structures can be used to solve problems.
