Asynchronous Programming in C#

Learn to effectively add synchrony to your .NET application.

Nearly all applications today require some kind of asynchronous functionality. Your application might be described as a desktop application that must remain responsive to user input, or perhaps you are working on a web application that must scale under load. Your application may require asynchrony because it is compute-intensive and must take advantage of multi-core hardware, or maybe yours is a distributed application that must access multiple resources concurrently. Regardless of the type of application, there is a core set of skills and knowledge you need to add asynchrony to your application. That is what this course covers.
