I am constantly banging my head on the wall with event based programming. Can anyone recommend a reference to better understand futures & listeners?

I am not adverse to reading code, but would like a recommended example. Or even a book with a complete tutorial built around it. But, I need a more solid understanding of how eventing works, the mechanics, and best practices.

Great talks on the future of web development
 
Hey folks, just wanted to share this playlist in case you missed the Polymer talks at Chrome Dev Summit:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vcQlD-jadk&list=PLmccrGoe3AUABlLmrZn4ukY8kxLIPRcOb

There are three talks in the list:

First is Dimitri Glazkov, talking about the history of Web Components and how they help us compose and reuse elements.

Matt McNulty talks about the roadmap for Polymer 1.0 and the performance improvements in the next release.

And I gave a talk on building Polymer apps, including how to make them performant with Vulcanize and work offline with Service Worker.

Hope you enjoy!
