Is async/await a step back to JavaScript?
Gabriel Montes

I have mixed feelings on async/await as well. On one hand, coming from the .NET world, it’s a welcome and familiar change. From a JavaScript perspective, it can lead you down a rabbit hole of endless confusion. Since JS is both functional and object-oriented, and both types of programmers are using it heavily, we have this sort of head-on collision of principles, today. I don’t think there’s an easy answer, but such is the case with the freedom that comes with a language as flexible as JS. Maybe I’ll grow a beard and by a bar up in the mountains, and say “screw it”.
