What is Asynchronous?
Asynchronous programming is a form of parallel programming that allows a unit of work to run separately from the main program. When the results of the async work are needed, the main program can resume execution.
What is the Difference Between Synchronous and Asynchronous?
The terms “synchronous” and “asynchronous” refer to the order in which code is executed. Synchronous code is executed in the order in which it is written, while asynchronous code can be executed out of order.
Synchronous code, on the other hand, is executed in a linear fashion. This means that each line of code must be completed before the next line can be executed. Synchronous code cannot be run in parallel with other code, as each line must be executed one at a time.
