A day of writing asynchronous code with C# 5

A session at SDD 2014

Monday 19th May, 2014

9:30am to 5:30pm (GMT)

Asynchronous programming is moving further into the mainstream with the introduction of the new async and await keywords. It is therefore becoming more and more important that we write async libraries for our own application stacks.

During this intensive day we will do a deep dive into how these new features work, and into the mechanics of how best to deliver asynchronous functionality in your applications, focusing not only on asynchronous compute but also on asynchronous IO, and how you can adapt existing old-style APIs to work with the new coolness.
