Asynchronous Programming in C# 5 - 1900 - 2030 hrs
Ever struggled writing or debugging multithreaded code? Join Joe Albahari, author of C# 5 in a Nutshell, for a practical session on how to write responsive applications in C# 5 without resorting to threads, locks or BackgroundWorker. We'll explore the theory as well as the practice behind C# 5's new asynchronous functions, and see why the old-school approach is not only hard work, but fundamentally broken. We'll also touch on Reactive Framework, and they'll be a question-and-answer session on all aspects of C# 5, asynchrony and multithreading.
Joe Albahari is the inventor of LINQPad and an O'Reilly author. He's published 7 books with O'Reilly, including C# 5.0 in a Nutshell, and has written extensively on multithreading and parallel programming. He speaks regularly at user groups and conferences such as TechEd and YOW, and has been a C# MVP since 2008.
