Using Async/Await in JavaScript ES2017

In this video, Rob Ruder explains how to use the new JavaScript ES2017 syntax for async functions (async / await).
First, he goes over the "traditional" way to deal with asynchronicity using callbacks (which quickly devolves into "callback hell"), then explains how promises make this much easier.
Finally, async functions are introduced as a way to succinctly write synchronous-looking asynchronous functions!
