C# 5 async and await: deep dive
There are several ways of doing asynchronous programming in .NET. C#5 / .NET 4.5 introduces a new approach that greatly simplifies the code flow and helps writing asynchronous code almost as easily as we write synchronous code. Moreover, understanding of the new async model is an essential knowledge for development of quality Windows Store apps.
This session dives deep into implementation details of async and await C# keywords and provides information about common pitfalls and mistakes of async pattern use and the ways to avoid them.
