Zones – Next Generation Async Flow Control for Node.js with Bert Belder

In this presentation, Bert Belder – Node core commiter & StrongLoop co-Founder demonstrates a flow control project called “Zones”. Why another async flow control project? Currently there are a couple of problems that make it really hard to reason about asynchronous control flow in Node:

1. Stack traces are useless when an asynchronous function fails
2. Async functions are hard to compose into more high-level APIs, resulting in callback hell
3. Async error handling will cause Node to crash

Zones should make it easy to handle errors and to avoid resource leaks, provide a way to associate user data to an async flow and much more! Watch the video to learn more or read the blog introducing Zones:

Node.js Asynchrony, Control-flow and Error handling with Adam Crabtree

In this talk, Adam Crabtree, LinkedIn Server Engineer and BayNode Founder discusses the distinction between asynchrony and control-flow, and their intimate connections to error handling. In modern Node.js development, control-flow is the guardian at the gates, dealing with asynchrony and enforcing contracts so you don’t have to. Control-flow helps juggle values, handle ordering, deal with errors, and sometimes hide asynchrony types all together. Additionally, there are many different asynchrony types including callbacks, promises, thunks and async generators and they each handle errors differently. Node.js itself has two very different ways of dealing with errors. Know why, and how it affects the code you write.
