Future-oriented programming in C#

A session at NDC Sydney 2016

Friday 5th August, 2016

1:40pm to 2:40pm (EST)

Just as writing functions doesn't turn you into a functional programmer, writing async methods in C# doesn't turn you into an asynchronous programmer.

To get the full benefit of asynchrony, we must go further and treat futures in the same way that functional programmers treat functions (and object-oriented programmers treat classes).

In this session, we'll go beyond the standard pattern for writing async functions in C#, and demonstrate how to simplify asynchrony and concurrency by thinking of futures as fundamental values.
