Today at PDC 2010, they announced Asynchronous functions in C# and VB.NET. So what exactly does that mean? I’ll give you the definition first: Asynchronous operations are methods and other function members that may have most of their execution take place after they return. In .NET the recommended pattern for asynchronous operations is for them to return a task which represents the ongoing operation and allows waiting for its eventual outcome.
