We will learn what the async pipe is and how we can use it to make dealing with requests easier.

The async pipe is appended to a data item in a template binding, usually in the ngFor directive, and it automatically unwraps the observable and binds to the data inside it. This is very convenient as it allows us to avoid manually subscribing to a request, and it is generally considered more of a best practice than manually running the subscribe method.
