Two ways can handle the asynchronous task 

  1. With Promise and then the method 
  2. With the async/await method 



The asynchronous function can be written using ‘async’ preceding the function name in Node js. The asynchronous function returns an implicit Promise as a result. The async function helps to write promise-based code asynchronously through the event loop. A value will always be returned in the Async function. 



Below is an example of how to tackle asynchronous code using node js 

Fig: Preview of the output that you will get on running this code from your IDE.



Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install Node and Visual Studio Code on your computer.
  2. Create a new folder in your local.
  3. Open that folder in Visual Studio Code.
  4. Then create a new JS file(Eg: node.js).
  5. Copy the snippet using 'copy' button and paste it into that file.
  6. Save the file and open the terminal, use this command 'node filename(node.js)' to get the output in your console.

I hope you found this helpful.
