Friday 16th September, 2011

9:00am to 10:00am (PST)

The new Windows Runtime is adopting a heavily asynchronous programming model to ensure the responsiveness of Windows 8 client apps. This makes it more critical than ever to have great support for asynchronous programming in your programming language. Come learn about the async language innovations coming in C# and Visual Basic and how these new language features come together with new Windows Runtime APIs to simplify asynchronous programming. No more callbacks!
