Abusing async/await for Fun and Profit

Oct 23, 2017 · New York, United States of America

async/await was the hottest feature of C# 6 when it came out, bringing a radically improved way to write asynchronous code and cure us of callback hell. But how does it really work?

In this talk we will take a deeper look at the machinery behind async/await and take advantage of the lesser known tuning capabilities introduced with C# 7 to use async/await in ways you wouldn’t have thought of like re-implementing F# computation expressions and supporting mobile patterns on Android.

Speaker: Jérémie Laval 

Developer at Xamarin and now Microsoft, Jérémie Laval has been in the Mono scene for a long time working on various open-source parts. These days this French guy spends his time improving the developer experience for Xamarin.Android.
