You may have heard a great deal about the async and await keywords. You may have used them here and there. Maybe you are just wondering what makes them so great, maybe you really love them. There is a whole framework behind those two words (The Task Parallel Library), with a lot more power to make asynchronous and multithreaded coding easier and smarter.  This session provides that ability to make your applications faster and more responsive without sacrificing the clarity and maintainability of single-threaded code.  Spaghetti asynchronous code is a thing of the past, and the TPL raises the bar for what good multithreaded code can look like in C#.


Richard Goforth has enjoyed programming since his youth with Commodore Basic and TI Graphing Calculator Games.  Upon Graduating NC State for Computer Science he entered the world of software development on the Microsoft stack.  He is pretty sure that he has some Microsoft certifications that he was told were very valuable.  Working with Magenic Technologies since 2011, he seeks to continually learn and broaden his software development horizons from the database to the user experience.  He says that his talks are all really interesting, but I wouldn’t take his word for it.
