Days of events

In addition to my responsibilities at RSK I also teach for developmentor, and this summer we are trying something new.  We are running days of events, so you don’t have to give up a whole week from the office to attend a training course during August we are running a day of .NET threading featuring C# 5 and Visual Studio 11.  So at the end of the day you will be up to speed on threading for .NET 4 and have a good insight to how things will be different in C#5 when it ships.

In addition to the days of threading we are running a day of design patterns, so if you still find yourself using the same techniques to solve problems, feel your OO skills are getting rusty then come along for a day, and immerse yourself in OO and design patterns.

Async/await mechanics

Just completed two screen casts describing the mechanics of how async and await work using Visual Studio 11 Beta, along with how you can create your own types to await on rather than always using tasks.
