The never ending game: ‘Asynchronous vs Synchronous’.
The concept of Synchronous and Asynchronous can be slightly compared to direct and undirect but here it is a whole other concept when it comes to web development.
As all of the other long days at work, I come back pretty exhausted. My son, as usual, always here to give me that well deserved hug and ask about my day at work. Like I always do I try to get him more involved to the science field, as far as I am concerned I think that this technique will enhance his logic and make him curious enough to discover a lot of things that we know today thanks to Science.
My wife came to me asking about if it would be better to go out to the grocery store first or have a quick snack before going out.
My son curiously asked : ‘ But dad what is the difference.’
This sentence made me directly think that it is a very good occasion to tell him about the difference between the Asynchronous and Synchronous or in other terms priority.
‘Listen son, in life there are priorities. And here your mom is giving priority to food. So the task of eating will be Synchronous we will eat first then we will go out to buy the stuff we need from the groceries shop and that is .. ’
He jumped out saying loudly ‘’ Asynchronous Dad isn’t it ‘’. I was happy once again that throughout real life experiences we can teach our young children so many things in such a small period of time. At the same time we are making sure that they will not forget about it.
This has been another fruitful day, always looking forward to learn and share.
