Asynchronous Programming

Javascript code generally handles network & IO operations asynchronously: instead of blocking on a file read or database call, a callback is called when the data is ready.

There are three main ways of handling this in Javascript (and therefore Typescript) programs: callbacks, promises, and async/await.

TL;DR

Use async/await.

Demonstration of handling asynchronous functions in loops in typescript using async/await

// Demonstration of different ways of running asynchronous functions in loops
import util = require("util");
const arr = ["a", "b", "c", "d"];
const setTimeoutPromise = util.promisify(setTimeout);
// Asynchronously wait a very short amount of time and then print our value
async function waitAndPrint(s: string): Promise<void> {
await setTimeoutPromise(Math.random() * 100);
console.log(s);

Demonstration of using AWS CDK
View index.ts
/*
I was curious as to whether it was possible to make resources
created using CDK constructs work with raw CloudFormation
resources and vice versa.
This aws-cdk app demonstrates a VPC and an ELB that belongs to it
in different, dependant stacks, leveraging CFN outputs / imports,
and leveraging CDK's method of passing information from one
stack to another.
