Tomas Petricek on Async in C# & F#

Asynchronous programming is the key to writing efficient and scalable server-side code in .NET as well as to writing user interfaces that do not hang while waiting for a response from a web service.
Last year, Microsoft announced Visual Studio Async CTP which adds support for asynchronous programming to the C# language. The extension was largely inspired by F# asynchronous workflows that are already available in Visual Studio 2010.
In this session, we'll look at how to write asynchronous code today using F# and how we'll write asynchronous code tomorrow using C#. We'll also look at F# agents, which is an elegant programming model for writing concurrent applications and you'll learn how to use F# agents from C# using the Visual Studio Async CTP.

    It was literally one of the best meetings I've attended so far. Tomas is not only very enthusiastic but he is also an expert in the area he was talking about. Tomas not only gave a nice introduction to C#5 async, but also show how async works in F#, and I bet that many people got interested into F# after the talk!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
