Cincinnati Javascript: Asynchronous JavaScript Demystified with Kory Smith

This video is from the Cincinnati JavaScript User Group Meetup (link that to, a community organized meetup that we co-hosted.

We all love promises and async/await, but have you ever wondered what actually happens in the JavaScript engine when you use them in your code? Have you ever wondered why you can’t use await in top-level code? This session will take you behind the scenes into asynchronous JavaScript. We’ll code the global Promise object from scratch and show what really happens when you await a value.

Kory Smith is a product manager at Kroger that’s been enjoying picking up some development work recently. He’s passionate about Javascript and eager to build his software development skills.
