A day of async programming

A session at SDD 2016

Monday 16th May, 2016

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

Asynchronous programming is being pushed further into the norm 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 stack.

During this intensive workshop we will do a deep dive into how these new features work, and into the mechanics of how best to deliver asynchronous functionality into your applications.
We’ll focus 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.

The two speakers co-authored the Apress book Pro Asynchronous Programming with .NET.
