Join me for a CodeMash precompiler workshop on C# async

I’m thrilled to be enjoying a new experience at CodeMash 2013: I’ll be hosting a precompiler workshop on C# 5.0 async programming techniques.

I’ve spoken at every previous CodeMash, but this is the first time I’m running a half day workshop. I like the challenge of preparing a half day of async content, and taking participants on a larger journey. That’s what this is about: My goal, if you give me four hours, is to teach you to see async, await, Task<T> and related types the same way you see for, if, and foreach: tools you use every day. There’s quite a bit to cover, and I’m looking forward to every minute of it.  I hope you’ll join me.

You can see all the sessions here: They are a menus of awesome that’s better than a bacon bar.

I'm also the president of Humanitarian Toolbox. We build Open Source software that supports Humanitarian Disaster Relief efforts. We'd appreciate any help you can give to our projects. Look at our GitHub home page to see a list of our current projects. See what interests you, and dive in.

Or, if you have a group of volunteers, talk to us about hosting a codeathon event.
