Concurrent programming may sound abstract and complex, but it helps to deliver a better user experience. With single threaded JavaScript, applications lack dynamism. This means that when JavaScript code is running, nothing else can happen. The DOM can't update, which means the UI freezes. In a world where users expect speed and responsiveness - in all senses of the word - this is something no developer can afford.

Fortunately, JavaScript has evolved to adopt concurrent capabilities - one of the reasons why it is still at the forefront of modern web development. This book helps you dive into concurrent JavaScript, and demonstrates how to apply its core principles and key techniques and tools to a range of complex development challenges. Built around the three core principles of concurrency - parallelism, synchronization, and conservation - you'll learn everything you need to unlock a more efficient and dynamic JavaScript, to lay the foundations of even better user experiences.
