Asynchronous Programming #1 - Facebook@3x

There is already tons of awesome articles and guides explaining asynchronous programming, one more is probably only going to contribute to the mess, instead I want to try a different approach: the image above gives you a bitsized explanation that might be a good starting point to fully understand other in deep guides, or probably a good finalizer that makes everything you already know fit harmoniously 🤞

Personal Recommendations

And also, these are the related posts (of tons I have read) that I personally liked a lot, you will definitely learn a lot from them:

  1. A gentle introduction to multithreading — Internal Pointers

  2. Asynchronous programming in C# | Microsoft Docs

  3. General asynchronous programming concepts — Learn web development | MDN (

  4. ⭐️🎀 JavaScript Visualized: Promises & Async/Await — DEV Community 👩‍💻👨‍💻

  5. Concurrency, Parallelism, Threads, Processes, Async, and Sync — Related? 🤔 | by G. Abhisek | Swift India | Medium
