Exploring JavaScript

Asynchronous Patterns in JavaScript Part 2

Last time I examined callbacks, thunks and promises in dealing with async control flows in JavaScript. Now it's time to get over the basics and level up our skills. I'll introduce you some of the most exciting techniques in asynchronous programming.


Asynchronous Patterns in JavaScript Part 1

Dealing with asynchronous logic is one of the most challenging parts in programming. In this two-part series, I'll take a close look into different patterns of handling async control flow.


Understanding Blockchain By Writing One With JavaScript

Blockchain technology is widely discussed in the tech community as well as in the mass media. The hype in the media makes blockchain seem like a cutting-edge technology that only trained experts are able to get a hang on. However, we don't need to be an expert to understand the core mechanism of blockchain. In this post, I'm going to demonstrate how blockchain works by writing a simple blockchain with vanilla JavaScript.
