Switching To Promises

Gorgi Kosev has a great write-up about why he's switching to promises. I had a similar insight last year after reading Domenic Denicola's excellent article, "You're Missing the Point of Promises".

And now that promises are officially part of ES6, I feel fairly vindicated. Combined with generators, and a module like co promises are set to be the standard way of managing asynchronous complexity in javascript.

For an awesome example of how all these things can fit together into something beautiful, take a look at the new koa web framework from TJ Holowaychuk and Jonathan Ong.
