JavaScript Promises Essentials

I have some very exciting news!

My book titled JavaScript Promises Essentials has been published. For the past couple of months I was a bit :) busy with authoring this small technical book of around 90 pages. It was a great challenge, as the topic is very focused. This book is my second publication after the title Developing Windows Store Apps with Html5 and JavaScript which was published last year around the same time. My second authoring experience and it is getting better, I do hope that I will be able to find time in the future for more books and maintain the rhythm. The book was published by Packt Publishing whose team of editors, technical editors, reviewers and project managers provided me with a great guidance and support throughout the authoring period. Moreover, I would like to thank Brian Cavalier for his support and taking the time to contribute with his knowledge on the topic.

The book has the following details:

  • ISBN: 139781783985647
  • Paperback: 90 pages

In a nutshell, the main topic of the book is JavaScript Promises; which is a new programming concept in JavaScript that allow developers to request data that they don’t have yet and deal with it at a non-determined point in the future (asynchronously). Starting with the basics of the promise objects, we’ll be able to leverage the maximum capabilities of promises when writing applications.

The book starts by giving you some background information on the asynchronous programming model in JavaScript, recognizing its importance in JavaScript programming. It then walks you through the key concepts and intricacies of the Promises API. Following that, you will learn how you can write complex asynchronous operations with chained promises and be able to catch and handle exceptions. This book aims at providing you with the essential knowledge needed to write better asynchronous operations using JavaScript promises

Who This Book Is For

If you are a JavaScript developer working with asynchronous operations and want to know more about promises, then this book is ideal for you. Having a detailed explanation of JavaScript promises will be perfect as your next step towards adopting this new standard and using the API in your web and JavaScript applications.

Here is a list of some of the things that you will learn from reading this book:

  • Implement asynchronous programming in JavaScript
  • Get acquainted with the JavaScript Promises API
  • Choose the right JavaScript libraries to use callbacks in a non-compatible platform
  • Write chained asynchronous operations that are easy to manage
