When I started learning NodeJS and researched a lot on this topic, I stumbled across this video from Philip Roberts Opens in new tab:

I already watched it years ago but did not remember everything. Especially in the context of learning NodeJS but also when you're learning JavaScript in general this is one of the best videos teaching a topic about the language ever.

I rewatched it and learned a ton about the JS event loop and asynchronous programming. So good!

I hope you enjoyed this post and learned something new. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter Opens in new tab or via Email Opens in new tab.

If you want to support me, you can buy me a coffee. I would be very happy about it!
