  • Javascript Promises – The Definitive Guide

    The single-threaded, event-loop based concurrency model of JavaScript, deals with processing of events using so-called “asynchronous non-blocking I/O model.” Unlike computer languages such as Java, where events are handled using additional threads, processed in parallel with the main execution thread, JavaScript code is executed sequentially. In order to prevent blocking the main thread on I/O-bound…

    Structuring Data Using Structs When writing native modules in C/C++, it is often useful to structure data using something called structs. A struct is a low level data schema you can use in C/C++. They basically act as an encoding/decoding scheme, similar to protocol-buffers and many others data encoding schemes, to read/write the properties specified…

    Wormholes in JavaScript Computers are interesting machines. From a theoretical point of view, we tend to think of them as automated mathematicians, or put another way, just really good at adding, multiplying, and working with numbers in general. The automated mathematician, however, is a deceptive abstraction. It turns out the computer is much faster at…
