You should have added about what is coming up for C# soon - async: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/async.aspx

It's a very interesting feature.

I should have but I haven't had time to look into it and understand it yet, maybe a future post. There's a lot of stuff in the framework for parallel programming now, time to figure out which is still relevant.

It's pretty simple, "await/async" rewrites normal-looking code to continuation passing code the same way "yield return/yield break" rewrites normal-looking code to be a state-machine.

Jon Skeet has written a number of insanely detailed articles on it.

That makes sense and sounds a lot simpler than how I was trying to read the samples at first.

Oh and the PDC session added "compiler as a service", which was very interesting. You should go watch the PDC session on the future of C# and VB. It basically goes through async and compiler as a service idea.

Thanks for the tip, I'll check them out.
