The course has been created in conjunction with Google and the announcement on the Android Developers Blog reads:
We’ve just opened up a online course on Promises, built in collaboration with Udacity. This brief course, which you can finish in about a day, walks you through building an “Exoplanet Explorer” app that reads and displays live data using Promises. You’ll also learn to use the Fetch API and finally kiss XMLHttpRequest goodbye!
Udacity lists it as an Advanced course which can be covered in approximately 3 weeks assuming 6 hours per week, i.e. 18hrs - so if you do it in one sitting you might find it a long day, however as it is free you can spread it out over as long as you need to.
There are just two lessons:
Lesson 1 - Creating Promises
Lesson 2 - Chaining Promises
The lessons consist of videos and quizzes. There is also a hands-on project associated with the course, which is introduced at the beginning of the first lesson but crops up mainly in the second one, is an Exoplanet Explorer - which provides scope for plenty of asynchronous event.
You also need to be familiar with GitHub and command line tools.
