Thanks to some great sponsors we enjoyed a great venue and some excellent nibbles. For those who attended my Async my source code and presentation are available on GitHub, If you are new to Git then the easiest client to install is GitHub for Windows, a graphical ......

DDDNorth2 Bradford, 13th October 2012 - Async Patterns presentation and source code
Many thanks to Andy Westgarth and his team for organising a fantastic conference at the rather elegant Bradford University School of Management. Also, a big congratulations to all the delegates who gave up there free time to come and hear us speak and who were, in general, enthusiastic and asked some cracking questions to keep us speakers on our toes. For those who attended my Async my source code and presentation are now available on GitHub, If ......

DDDSouthWest 4.0 26th May 2012 - Async 20/20 presentation
As I wasn’t voted in with my nominated sessions I presented a 20/20 talk on the new async functionality coming with the .Net Framework. This was based on the PechaKucha presentation format, where you have only 20 slides with only 20 seconds per slide, and it progresses automatically. It was the first I’d attempted, so thanks to the organisers for allowing me to have a go. Although creating the slide deck was definitely easier than a one hour presentation, it was much more stressful giving the talk ......

Go Asynchronous with C# 5 - presentation, source code and links from NxtGenUG Birmingham - 13th September 2011
A big thanks to my lively audience at the NxtGenUG Birmingham group tonight who provided excellent feedback. I enjoyed the live coding to try to explore the limits of the framework, even though it was interrupted by my PC turning itself off and leading me to thinking I'd trashed my SSD drive. You can find my presentation online at over here, and the source code for the demos is available here. During the presentation I mentioned there were some additional blogs and articles that are well ......

Go Asynchronous with C# 5 - presentation, source code and links from London .Net Users Group - 1st September 2011
A big thanks to my lively audience at the London .Net Users group last night who provided excellent feedback. They even led me to some live coding to discover how the TaskEx.WhenAny deals with the tasks which didn't complete first - apparently they are immeadiately disposed of and their results are lost. Let's hope the release documentation for the Async libraries makes this very clear. I also must thank EMC Consulting for providing the facilities and beer, and Adgistics for providing the pizza, ......

Jon Skeet is starting a new series on C# 5.0 Async
Jon Skeet has started a new series of blogs on Async focussing on the underlying technology beneath the Async CTP and Async methods coming in C#5.0. Jon's blogs have a clear and deceptively easy to read style that belies the complex topics being discussed and is perfect for demystifying the technology behind Async so they are well worth the investment, and I'm looking forward to them hugely ......

New Visual Studio Async CTP refresh now works with VS2010 SP1
While I was away on a two week holiday in Morocco I notice that the Visual Studio team have dropped a very welcome SP1 refresh that means you can now play with the Async CTP with Visual Studio 2010 SP1. It also means you can program against ASP.NET MVC 3.0 and use the Aysnc CTP at the same time. Visual Studio Blog - SP1 refresh announcement - Lucian Wischik's Blog - design changes - ......

Microsoft Async CTP for DDD9 UK Developer Conference - slides and source code now available
UPDATE 25th April 2011 - Visual Studio Async CTP (SP1 refresh) now available. Thanks to all the nice comments from people who attended my presentation at DDD9, and extra thanks to Jon Skeet, Mark Rendle and Mike Hadlow for coming on stage for the last ten minutes to help debate whether the Async CTP is the correct way to go to enhance C# 5.0. The presentation is available at ......
