Progressive.NET Tutorials / Async Methods in C# 5

Please RSVP for instructions on how to join the event.

Description

Asynchrony is becoming increasingly important in an interconnected world. There are many opportunities for writing more efficient code - but until now it's frankly been a pain to do so. Parallel and asynchronous code is difficult to write, understand and debug... but C# 5's asynchronous methods help to at least reduce the burden of boilerplate code. They allow you to write code in a familiar fashion, with well-defined points of asynchrony, resulting in programs which are understandable by real humans like you and me. In this course I'll explain why the status quo isn't good enough, how asynchronous methods can be used on both the server and the client, and then go under the covers to show how they work.

Jon Skeet is a C# and Java developer currently working at Google in the UK. For many years he has been a frequent poster in technical newsgroups, and has been awarded as a C# MVP by Microsoft since 2003. His C# web site contains some of the most frequently referenced articles on topics such as singleton implementations and parameter passing. He was a member of the writing team for "Groovy in Action" in 2007, and his first solo book, "C# in Depth", came out in May 2008. Jon is interested in tracking how languages and platforms are evolving to blend imperative and functional styles of programming, as well as providing more support for parallelism. While his "day job" is programming in Java, Jon is a C# developer at heart. In his 20% time at Google he is currently working on a C# port of the recently open-sourced "Protocol Buffers" serialization framework.

This is a brief post documenting a very weird thing I partly came up with on Stack Overflow today. The context is this question. But to skip to the shock, we end up with code like this: That just shouldn’t happen. You shouldn’t be able to create an instan[...]

This post is an attempt to reduce the number of times I need to explain things in Stack Overflow comments. You may well be reading it via a link from Stack Overflow – I intend to refer to this post frequently in comments. Note that this post is mostly not[...]

Background I’m in the privileged position of receiving more invitations to speak (at conferences, user groups and podcasts) than I can realistically agree to. I’ve decided to start applying some new criteria to how I pick which ones I go to1. However, ove[...]

This was accidentally first posted here on my Code Blog. I deleted it and subsequently posted it in the proper place on my non-code blog. I’ve restored this placeholder post just so that anyone following links to it won’t get a 404…

I’ve been following the progress of .NET Core with a lot of interest, and trying to make the Noda Time master branch keep up with it. The aim is that when Noda Time 2.0 eventually ships (apologies for the delays…) it will be compatible with .NET Core from[...]
