I have closed Quake and started to code. It took me six long days to figure everything out and set up the console. It was an input field with a button. The button passed the command to the Javascript code. Then the code executed it and appended the result to a div element on the website. One day before the deadline I was ready to try it out. I called a command /show_log and immediately the page became filled with all the data and steps the algorithm made to assume kiełbasa is pierogi.

After testing for several hours I finally managed to fix all bugs in the code. It was working flawlessly. And the console allowed me to prove it!


Congratulations, @tomaszs! You’ve won $500!

If you work in JavaScript web development, I guess you're already familiar with a Promise and have faced callback hell multiple times before. Promise chaining in JavaScript is one way to solve the callback hell issue, and we will discuss it in this article.
