Frank Tip, Professor at Northeastern University.

ABSTRACT: In this presentation, we will review promises and async/await, two features that were recently added to the JavaScript programming language to facilitate asynchronous programming. While these features provide significant benefits over event-driven programming, their complexity poses significant challenges to programmers. We will discuss recent work on finding bugs in promise-based JavaScript applications and identify opportunities for future research. Joint work with Saba Alimadadi, Magnus Madsen, and Di Zhong.
