You know, there’s this one thing that has always driven me crazy about blogs.
You see, too often, whenever they explain how to do something, they’ll give you the basics. They step through “Hello, World”, and that’s it. But you find yourself wanting to do something more complicated, and you find yourself flitting through twenty “Hello, World” tutorials hoping to find more insight. As a musician, I can say that it’s one thing to learn musical scales, but it’s quite another thing to know songs in those scales or when it’s the right time to use them. With this post, I want to go a couple steps further. Promises are a great tool, but their purpose is to solve problems, not just get you past interviews (or provide cheap blog post fodder).
