Asynchronous Programming Models in .NET 

As we build increasingly connected systems, we often find that the bottleneck isn’t in the processor, but in the communications between systems and processes. To continue adding the perception of responsiveness in applications, we need to embrace more asynchronous programming models. When .Net was introduced, we were limited to event based callback implementations. Recently, we have seen a number of enhancements to the asynchronous programming arsenal. In this session, we will explore the event model and contrast it to models based on Lambda expressions, Iterators, and the Reactive Framework.
