Did you know that the .NET compiler turns our async methods into classes? And that .NET adds a try/catch block to each of these classes, potentially hiding thrown exceptions? It's true! In this session, we will learn how to best use async/await in C# by analyzing how .NET compiles our async code. Join me as we take an existing app and optimize its async code together, showing off performance gains, better exception handling, improved run-time speed, and smaller app size!
