Asynchronous vs Synchronous

There are benefits and downfalls to both but when should you use one over the other?

Asynchronous vs Synchronous can be hard to initially digest, but once you understand the basics of each programming tool, it can be a lot easier to understand and use for the right projects.

Asynchronous Defined

Enables you to move onto another task, before the previous tasks have been completed. An Asynchronous program allows you to manage and deal with multiple requests simultaneously.

Synchronous Defined

This sought of program can only be completed one at a time with the next task only being unblocked once the first task has been completed.
