Javascript and the mysteries of Async/Await

“Promises” are a part of the Javascript language that I’ve always had a hard time getting my head around, despite the fact I use them all the time. There’s just something oddly magical about them to me and I’m not sure I’ve ever been completely clear on all the nuances of the Promise object as it has evolved. This article on CSS-Tricks does a really nice job breaking down how the syntax works and what it all means. It’s by Sarah Drasner, who I’d say is one of the best Javascript teachers out there.
