Simple Async Await Example for Asynchronous Programming

Stephen Haunts { Freelance Trainer and Writer }

In this article I want to give a simple example for how to use the async await keywords in C# to create asynchronous background tasks.

Writing multi-threaded or asynchronous code has traditionally always been very hard to get right but is something that is needed to help keep our applications responsive and to avoid performance bottlenecks. C# 5 introduced a simplified model for doing asynchronous programming with the introduction of 2 new keywords, async and await.

If you specify that a method is an asynchronous method by using an async modifier, you enable the following two capabilities.

  • The marked async method can use the await keyword to designate suspension points. The await operator tells the compiler that the async method can’t continue past that point until the awaited asynchronous process is complete. In the meantime, control returns to the caller of the async method. The suspension of an async method…

What really is Katana and owin?

resourceful post

Code! Code! Code!

What really is really Katana? How about Owin? After playing around with Katana, I really found it worthywhile to post about what I have found regarding them. OWIN ( initials for Open Web Interface for .NET )is a set of specifications that defines a stardand interface between which .NET web servers and web applications communicates. Katana on the hand is an implementation of the OWIN.

A little history of ASP NET is that it was released in early 2002 or sometime around then, with .NET framework 1.0 and it was meant to bring a web experience for customers who included classic asp  and desktop line of business application developers like VB 6.

There were alot of stuff and concerns brought forward by these two customers, which meant that the framework was to be monolithic leading to inclusion of all concerns in one single package, System.Web.  The package included just to…

3 Things About Problem Solving

1. “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

2. “If I had an hour to solve a problem, I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”

3. “Logic will get you from point A to point B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

Albert Einstein
