Oh, what a tangled web

    Elegance in Asynchrony



    Last week at the PDC we released the Async CTP (community technology preview) for C# and VB.  It’s got this really nifty feature that turns otherwise horrendous gobbledygook of callback nastiness into nice legible, linear source code, so you can actually write asynchronous code as if it were synchronous; no muss, no fuss.

    But I don’t really need to tell you about this, as you’ve certainly read umpteen other blogs and news articles already that have either confounded you with a bazillion examples or threatened you with what the code would have otherwise looked like, the kinds of software geek horrors reserved for Halloween night obfuscation contests.

    We’ve all been there, right?
