In JavaScript, promises are a way to handle data asynchronously

I've watched both of the previous videos and read their transcripts and can find no mention whatsoever of promises. So how are we to know the answer to this question?

Glancing at the previous videos, you're right, I didn't see any mention of promises in the transcript, and only one mention to JavaScript's asynchronous nature. Promises are indeed asynchronous, though-- and I believe Angular uses them. If you aren't already familiar with promises, Andrew has a workshop on them. Hope that helps!
