Asyncing and Awaiting Windows 8

Speaker:

Michael L Perry

Abstract:

If you thought Silverlight was asynchronous, just a-wait till you see WinRT. Windows 8 is coming, and it has a completely new API. In addition to the familiar Win32, developers can now take advantage of WinRT to participate in the Metro experience.

Just about every operation in WinRT is asynchronous. And not just web calls. Even opening a file is an async operation. Arm yourself with the latest tools in .NET 4.5 — the async and await keywords — to take full advantage of the platform.

Bio:

Software is math. Michael L Perry has built upon the works of mathematicians like Bertrand Meyer, James Rumbaugh, and Donald Knuth to develop a mathematical system for software development. He has captured this system in a set of open source projects, Update Controls and Correspondence. As a Solutions Architect at AmerisourceBergen, he applies mathematical concepts to building scalable and robust enterprise systems. You can find out more at qedcode.com.
