[Online] I’ll Get Back to You: Task, Await, & Async Methods with Jeremy Clark

Join Signature Consultants and us online on Tuesday, April 28th, at 6:00 PM. There’s much confusion about async/await, Task/TPL, and asynchronous and parallel programming in general. So let’s start with the basics and look at how we can consume asynchronous methods using Task and then see how the “await” operator can make things easier for us. Along the way, we’ll look at continuations, cancellation, and exception handling.

The meeting presenter is Jeremy Clark.

Jeremy Clark makes developers better. By drawing on over 15 years of experience in application development, he helps developers take a step up in their skillset with a focus on making complex topics approachable regardless of skill level. Jeremy is a Microsoft MVP for .NET and has authored seven courses for Pluralsight, including “C# Interfaces,” aimed at giving developers a clear understanding of abstraction. He loves speaking and has delivered over 300 technical presentations in the last ten years in the United States and Europe. Jeremy lives in northern Washington with his lovely wife, three cats, two dogs, and a banjo.
