My Learning Journey in Futures and Promises

By Ying Ka Ho

Futures and Promises pattern have taken a renewed interest in the 21st century in the field of asynchronous programming. The .NET Framework has popularized the new constructs for such patterns beginning with F# and then C#. Having worked with asynchronous programming in the .NET framework since its introduction in C# in version 4.5 of the framework, I will share my experience in learning, understanding and using such new constructs. This talk is generally conceptual and not limited to .NET framework as there are other programming languages that adopt (or are adopting) such patterns.
