So many modern applications need to be able to make calls asynchronously. Whenever you have a method call that could take longer than 50 milliseconds, you want to be able to return control to the user so your users does not need to wait for some “long” activity. Those long activities might be retrieving data from a database or a Web service. Or it could be something that takes long calculation.
And wouldn’t it be awesome to have a way to do that in your code using the same techniques you have today?
Visual Studio Async CTP extends Visual Studio 2010. It provides streamlined syntax for asynchronous development in C# and Visual Basic. The following videos demonstrate how to use asynchronous programming in Visual Basic and Visual C#.
New videos show you step-by-step how to make your code asynchronous.
