Hi, I'm Max! 👋

I'm an open source developer and love coding. I make some things you might have heard of, like styled-components, react-boilerplate, KeystoneJS and CarteBlanche.

I'm also a huge coffee geek, skiing instructor and traveller.

About the Course

Generators are a useful tool for handling asynchrony in your JavaScript applications. They were added to JavaScript with ES2015. When applied correctly they allow us to write asynchronous code that looks synchronous.

They also turn one of JavaScripts core paradigms on its head. Contrary to normal functions, generator functions can be paused and resumed at any arbitrary point in time with the yield keyword.

This course will walk you through the basics of generators so you’ll be able to use them in your applications without ripping your hair out!
