This evening I gave a talk on the Task Parallel Library (TPL) and the asynchronous programming features of C# 5.0 & .NET 4.5 at the Israeli Web developers user group. Thank you all for coming, I had a lot of fun!
Although the TPL has been around in release for for more than 3 years, I’m still surprised to find developers who know little about and don’t use it. This is unfortunate, as I consider the TPL one of the best parts of .NET. I wish more developers learn it and use it. The same goes for C# 5.0. For those who attended, I gave away a free copy to one lucky winner of my book, WPF 4.5 Cookbook.
As promised, here is the SkyDrive link to the presentation and demos, some of which I didn’t show because of time constraints.
