Task.Run vs. Task.Factory.StartNew (Part 2) This post continue the previous post about the differences between Task.Run vs. Task.Factory,StartNew. In the previous part I was speaking about the scheduling aspect, on this part I will spot the async await behavior.   Check the following code snippet and think what can go wrong: Code Snippet private async Task ExecuteAsync() {     var sw = Stopwatch.StartNew();     await Task.Factory.StartNew(async () =>         {             Console.WriteLine("Start section");             await Task.Delay(1000);             Console.WriteLine("End section");         });     Console.WriteLine(sw.Elapsed); }   What output will it produce?

Task.Run vs. Task.Factory.StartNew (Part 1)
