OSH03 Asynchronous JavaScript and TypeScript for SharePoint Developers


9:30am - 10:45am

Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Rob Windsor

Senior Consultant and Trainer

In JavaScript and TypeScript, all calls to SharePoint must be made asynchronously. In this session we’ll take a look at using promises (both jQuery and ES6) to make these calls. We’ll also examine how to use promises when making Client Object Model calls, how to coordinate multiple asynchronous calls, and how to use async and await in TypeScript.

You will learn:

  • About asynchronous programming using promises
  • About making web service calls asynchronously
  • About combining and chaining asynchronous calls
