Lesson 6 - Asynchronous Programming in C# .NET - Async and await
In the previous lesson, Tasks - Better Parallel Programming in C# .NET, we introduced Tasks. Today's tutorial is going to be about asynchronous programming, which has been new in C# since .NET version 4.5.
We already know that if our application is performing a long-term operation (such as accessing a website), it stops responding to user requests for a while. We also know that when we solve this problem by using threads directly, it can be quite problematic and our application can get significantly complicated and harder to debug.
Therefore, since version 4.5, C# .NET supports asynchronous methods, which simplifies the problem.
