Time to lose the synchronicity

    I have a bunch of projects that I am going to fix-up / recompile to make some of the database calls asynchronous. What are you guys planning on changing in your 4.5 projects?

    The first thing I'll probably do is convert any projects using EF to EF 5.0.

    All the async stuff, definitely. I can't wait for those async/await keywords.

    Never had an issue with asynchrony in versions prior to .NET 4.5.

    The performance improvements in WPF and .NET are what I will upgrade for

    Rx for the win!

    Await is for wannabe's Wink

    @Maddus Mattus: Have you ever took an application, ripped out the events, and replaced them with observables?

    @JoshRoss: not in enterprise apps, but I've stopped using events in my personal projects.

    When I write proxies for web operations or other async stuff, I use rx. It's much more clean then events. I'll admit, it's more complicated, but once you get the hang of it you can do more complicated stuff more easy.

    for instance; you want to run three proxy queries simultaniously and only continue when all three are completed. That's peanuts in rx.

    events are dead and should be removed from the .net framework Wink
