The last few months I have been learning JavaScript and React.js while finishing the final stretch of the Software Engineering curriculum at Flatiron School. Using the Fetch API has been integral part of this experience.

I wanted to understand the tools I had been using a little better. This blog will be about promises, and I will make a future blog post about the Fetch API.
