Topic: Escape from Callback Hell

Presenter: Ian Bishop


This will be an exploration of the problems that arise while writing asynchronous programs in Javascript. Applications of asynchronous programming in Javascript range from asynchronous network requests (AJAX) to reading files. We will compare different thought frameworks available to tackle these problem spaces, affectionately known as "callback hell". These frameworks include Promises/A+ (jQuery Deferred), continuations, third-party libraries and communicating sequential processes (CSP). 

Speaker Bio:

He mostly works on high-performance distributed systems but has a background in writing ambitious Javascript applications. He has spent the last year contributing to several open source projects and teaching classes through CS Square at the University of New Brunswick.
