There's a lot of confusion about async/await, Task/TPL, and asynchronous and parallel programming in general. So, let's start with the basics and look at how we can call asynchronous methods using Task and then see how the "await" operator can makes things easier for us. Along the way, we'll look at continuations, ConfigureAwait, and exception handling.

You will learn:

  • How to get data back from an asynchronous method
  • How to handle exceptions that occur in an asynchronous method
  • When to use "ConfigureAwait"
