Forget about Threads: Tasks, Asynchronous Methods & Co-routines



Arne Claassen presents the benefits of asynchronous programming, demoing and contrasting DReAM coroutines with C#’s asynchronous methods.


Arne Claassen is a senior software developer at MindTouch and the lead developer of DReAM, MindTouch's open source REST framework. His particular focus is on parallel and asynchronous programming and how to make it writing code that scales over multiple processors and servers more accessible and intuitive.

About the conference

Monospace provides developers a unique look at running their applications across all the platforms using Microsoft's .NET Framework by focusing on the Mono framework and open source .NET technologies. We will start with 2 days of talks and sessions, aiming to teach the attendees about the various technologies and innovations that currently exists. We will then end with a one day open space unconference where dialogs and conversations will help kick start the next wave of open source projects that will help the community remain competitive.

    The code screen is visible in the video above the slides. It isn't the greatest quality, but it is in there.
