Much of the recent innovation in .NET involves making it easier to write asynchronous programs. You don’t need to write asynchronous callbacks or thread synchronizations anymore. The Task Parallel Library in C#/VB, and asynchronous workflows in F# let you write safe, correct asynchronous code almost as easily as synchronous code. But with new power comes old responsibilities: when is asynchronous programming appropriate, and which technique is best for your particular problem? Principal Consultant Richard Broida from Bennett Adelson will review the current async technologies and demonstrate how functional programming makes the job easier.

About Azure SIG
The Cleveland Azure Special Interest Group (Azure SIG) (formerly the Cleveland .NET SIG) was founded in a partnership between Bennett Adelson and Microsoft 20 years ago. The SIG has become the forum for Azure collaboration and instruction from some of the brightest minds in the region. The organization was founded to provide enterprise customers and community with educational support on the Azure cloud platform. The group meetings consist of architecture and implementation focused, content-rich presentations and interactive discussions with demos. The audience ranges from Azure experts to those decision makers, infrastructure engineers, and developers that are getting their first glimpse of the cloud.
