@calmdev

Thanks for posting this. I'm exploring moving from async to promises with Q right now and this is extremely helpful.

@twistedstream

Excellent gist! I've already used it to build a few of my own libraries.

Quick question: any reason why your reduce and reduceRight functions are using Array.map instead of Array.forEach? I created a RSVP.js version of your reduce function using forEach and it seemed to work.

sheesh I wish github would notify me when someone comments on a gist :) I just got these comments! @twistedstream, i probably was in a map mode, seems forEach would work just as well :)

@christiansaiki

Great gist! Thanks for sharing
