Next Meeting

November 10, 2014

Speaker: David Mohundro
Topic: "Inconceivable Threading - I do not think it means what you think it means"
Summary: With the Task Parallel Library and async/await, we can see multithreading used throughout the .NET Framework; however, it is often used poorly or incorrectly. For 80% of the cases, there are really only two reasons you might want to use multithreading. We'll look into these two cases and we'll also build our own async/await so that we'll have a better understanding of what async/await give us.
Speaker Bio: David is a software developer, architect, and craftsman. He has been in the software industry for over 10 years, though he has been a technology enthusiast much longer. David's experience is primarily with Microsoft technologies such as the .NET Framework using both C# and VB.NET as well as PowerShell, but he has also worked with web technologies such as JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. He also enjoys experimenting and learning new languages.
