Wrangling multiple asynchronous calls

Now that we're comfortable dealing with asynchronous operations, we'll take a look at a common use case: performing multiple asynchronous operations. The beauty of this paradigm is that these operations happen concurrently by default. Most especially with requests to remote web resources, which can often have a latency in the hundreds of milliseconds, it's hugely important that we can send a second request into the world without waiting for the first one to return. This ability comes with a few caveats, though. We'll look at some common pitfalls and learn how to navigate them with CoffeeScript's help.

We'll add a new section to our additional info. Displaying the summary text for a given breed is good, but ...
