Abusing Async/Await (for fun and profit)

Abusing Async/Await (for fun and profit)

async/await was the hottest feature of C# 6 when it came out, bringing a radically improved way to write asynchronous code and cure us of callback hell. But how does it really work?

In this talk we will take a deeper look at the machinery behind async/await and take advantage of the lesser known tuning capabilities introduced with C# 7 to use async/await in ways you wouldn’t have thought of like re-implementing F# computation expressions and supporting mobile patterns on Android.
