Lesson 3, “Asynchronous Programming,” looks at the key ingredient of Node.js, which makes it so fast and scalable: the fact that everything is asynchronous and nothing in Node.js blocks. This lesson compares synch and async programming, handling errors in asynchronous programming, using the “this” pointer and the synchronous programming that is still possible in Node.js.
