CANCELLED: Building IIS and ASP.NET apps with the power of async

Sign in to queue


It’s well established from both theory and practice that Web sites and Web services achieve scale through asynchrony. If a dedicated thread is required per client connection to a server, scalability becomes limited by the number of threads the server system can support, which is typically far fewer than business requirements demand. Unfortunately, it’s also been difficult historically for developers to write asynchronous apps, due to the myriad of callbacks that have been necessary to program asynchrony successfully. Thus, businesses scale by investing in many more machines rather than by making better use of the ones they already have or the few they’re paying for use of in the cloud. All that changes with the next release of Visual Studio and .NET. New features in managed languages make writing asynchronous code as simple as writing synchronous code, thereby enabling both developer productivity and good return on investments. In this code-heavy session, learn how you can be the hero of your organization, building efficient and scalable server apps that best utilize your company’s resources.

    Hey guys, maybe Channel 9 crew could invite Phil and Damian and have them present a short version of this talk for all the Channel 9 viewers to see? Smiley

    This is such a great topic and I believe many ASP.NET developers would love to hear more about it.

    It is really sad, this was of the few topics i was VERY interested in watching.

    Way too many Metro presentations, this is such a shame.

    The session speaker had to cancel the talk and returned to Redmond due to a family medical emergency.  We're exploring another approach, likely through Channel 9, to deliver this talk in the near future.

    This is the most important topic to me besides websockets and signalR

    I hope Channel 9 resusitates this session because clients with existing ASP.NET websites (including locations where I've worked) need to be reassured that future versions of ASP.NET will fully support the latest async technology of the .NET framework.  I can't simply say that if Microsoft doesn't say it, can I?
