Javascript Promises and Async/Await

I recently came to Javascript from too many years in a C/C++/Python world. Javascript is very familiar in many ways, and different in quite a few as well (see: all the ways to import/export in Javascript — not that Python’s module/import system is so great either.) As a systems-level programmer, I like to know how things work all the way down to the metal. It’s satisfying, but it also really helps with debugging.
