A beginner's guide to the behaviours of async code in C# with Matt Rosanowski

C# has a language-level asynchronous programming model, which allows for easily writing asynchronous code without having to juggle callbacks or conform to a library that supports asynchrony. You might use it many times already in your projects. But let's delve how it works! Come and join us with Matt Rosanowski and see how he plays magic on async/await.

With Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub, what does this mean for DevOps and what’s special about GitHub Advanced Security?
