Dojo Tutorial: Getting Started with Deferreds

As part of our ongoing series of Dojo Tutorials we’re releasing our latest tutorial: Getting Started with Deferreds.

What’s a Deferred?

A Dojo feature since version 0.3, Deferreds are a simple, yet powerful mechanism that make it easy to work with asynchronous actions, such as Ajax requests. In its simplest form, a Deferred waits until a later time to perform an action; essentialy, you’re deferring the action until a prior action is completed. This feature is used throughout Dojo’s Ajax APIs which all return Deferreds.

Check it out!

Deferreds may let you delay an action until later, but don’t delay going to read this great tutorial!
