Using Async in Your Mobile Apps - On Demand

Presented by Craig Dunn

C# 5 added first-class support for asynchronicity in the language through the introduction of the async and await keywords. A powerful and brilliantly simple language tool, async makes it easy to write responsive user interfaces on mobile applications, which in turn, makes for delighted users. Async also makes complex workflows with error handling easier to write. This translates into proper error messages and proper program recovery. Finally, async eliminates bugs from your code by letting the compiler do the work for you. As a result, you can enjoy your work and focus on what really matters in your application. This session will show you how to get the most out of your apps by adding a little async.
