"Please don't block!" could be the mantra of modern application development in a cloud-connected and I/O intensive world dealing with latencies all over the board. Come and see how asynchronous programming works throughout the operating system, the CLR, and all the way up to the async and await language features in C# 5.0 and VB 11. Throughout this talk, we'll look at pitfalls, debugging tricks, extensibility points, and best practices.

      Wow what an information packed speech. The mystery of async and await is finally starting to unravel for me. Thank you very much. Although reveiling the menu kinda left me graving for more.

      Wow - gr8 speech and very nice explanation. I don't think there will be better explanation w.r.t state machine else where :). Btw, i would have liked if error handling/exception handling covered a bit - probably am greedy! I have enjoyed watching the video.

      Super session, I've been playing recently with async/await and got really important points to take care of when writing libraries and what could and why go wrong when used in different application.
