WEBINAR REMINDER: Jon Skeet on Async in C# 5

Calling all language lovers, let this serve as your reminder for a terrific webinar that we have in store for you tonight.

All-round language lothario, Jon Stackoverflow Skeet will be presenting a session today at Midday PST (8:00pm GMT) entitled “Async from scratch, from a language lover's perspective”.

Jon has promised us an enlightening exploration of what the proverbial engine inside the new async feature is doing under the hood, so to speak.

This is an exclusive addition to the DevExpress Webinar Series and we are very honoured to have Jon join our host Amanda Christensen for an hour of excellent content.

Webinar Description

You've probably seen some of the excitement around the "async" feature of C# 5, but how does it all work under the hood? What does it mean when we say we're registering a continuation to run when a task completes? How much behaviour is actually prescribed by the language?

In a shocking break from other presentations, Jon may well attempt to talk about async without the safety net of a flashy GUI. Instead, we'll create some very simple supposedly-asynchronous code, some of which won't even do anything asynchronous at all. Just don't tell the compiler. Who needs AsyncCTP.dll when we can write our own GetAwaiter method?
If we have time, he'll also give some examples of extra building blocks we can use in a compositional way to make our async life simpler.
