In this talk, Jeff shows how to use C# 5’s new async/await features (which he helped design with Microsoft). TheseJeffrey Richter features allow you to build scalable and responsive applications. We’ll discuss how the compiler transforms your code, error handling, limitations, performance, and various other features to simplify your code while getting the most out of the underlying hardware.

Avoid those performance bottlenecks and don't let your application turn into a tombstone of unresponsiveness.
