Better Async with Redux Saga

Kushan Joshi at ReactFoo 2017

This talk assumes basic familiarity with Redux. I would use half of the talk to explain what are generator functions. Generators are very different from anything javascript has had in the past. This turns off many people to adopt Redux Sagas as each heavily relies on generators. The remaining half I will cover how we handle async actions in projects at Mapbox. The problem with redux-thunk and how Redux saga helps convert async control flow to a more synchronous like control flow.
