If you’re writing one of several applications that call for asynchronous programming, this concise hands-on guide shows you how the async feature in C# 5.0 can make the process much simpler.

  • Write your own asynchronous code, and learn how async saves you from this messy chore
  • Discover new performance possibilities in ASP.NET web server code
  • Explore how async and WinRT work together in Windows 8 applications
  • Learn the importance of the await keyword in async methods
  • Understand which .NET thread is running your code—and at what points in the program
