In this chapter, you saw how asynchronous programming is available to developers with different .NET techniques. Although with the last .NET editions, the TAP (with the
await method) will be the main choice when dealing with such programming. A complete knowledge of the available solutions is mandatory anytime we cannot use the newest .NET edition. Moreover, it is actually a plus to know all the available techniques because such a wide knowledge opens the mind of any developer to the asynchronous theory problems and solutions.
In the next chapter, you will learn more about parallelism, another important aspect of high performance programming.
