C# 5 async/await

A session at SDD 2014

Tuesday 20th May, 2014

11:30am to 1:00pm (GMT)

.NET 4 introduced the new task abstraction, and C#5 will take advantage of integrating this into the language via the async and await keywords. In addition, the task abstraction promotes a new way of architecting asynchronous behaviour; not only for the client side but also for the server side, whether it be WCF or MVC. We will complete the session by building various async/await-friendly data structures.
