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.
Prior to co-founding Rock Solid Knowledge, Andy cut his teeth working in various start-ups, programming on a host of platforms, and finally working for a company acquired by Cisco in 1997. After working for Cisco for a few years, the pull of the start-up world was too much to resist, and he now spends his time working on RSK’s kiosk-based solutions on Windows Embedded with .NET, alongside consulting and teaching for a diverse range of clients. Andy is co-author of Asynchronous Programming on the .NET Framework, published by Apress.
