Asynchronous Programming .NET 4.0 and Beyond
Today’s users expect applications to be responsive, regardless of whether they’re on a desktop, a mobile device or even the web. Yet, with all the services that need to be integrated and all the processing that needs to be done, how can developers manage to keep their applications performing well. What? Asynchrony you say? The .NET Framework has always had support for building concurrent applications with various patterns to chose from. In this talk we’ll look at the latest pattern in the framework for building such applications, the Task Parallel Library. We’ll explore it’s origins in .NET 4.0 and also look at the new additions in .NET 4.5.
