The Evolution of Asynchronous Programming on .NET

Everything you wanted the know about asynchronous programming in .NET, but were afraid to ask. Multithreaded programming is hard. the latest version of Visual Studio includes language additions to C# and VB to make it much easier to write asynchronous code (the async and await keywords). .NET has had numerous ways to implement asynchronous and lengthy operations over the years. This session details some of these techniques, their benefits and their drawbacks. This session also details the progression of these techniques leading up to async/await in an effort to better understand the new syntax as well as better understand how to migrate existing asynchronous code to the new syntax. As well, this session allows you to increase your expertise with several advanced language features that the new syntax and existing patterns build on, like lambdas, anonymous methods, closures, etc.
