August Meeting: The Four Laws of Time with Joe Albahari

Our next meeting will be Thursday August 1st and Joe Albahari is going to teach us The Four Laws of Time

Here's what you can expect:

You've heard, time and again, that multithreaded programming is impossibly difficult. I'm going to tell you that everything you've heard is wrong: concurrency itself is reasonably easy. The complexity arises from allowing concurrency logic to mix with application and business logic. And from confusing time-based concerns with concurrency-based concerns.

Solving this properly requires a new way of thinking about time, concurrency and space. We need to treat time as a dimension in its own right and embrace the Four Laws of Time. Join us as we hop into the Tardis and take a time-centric look at C#, asynchronous functions and Reactive Extensions.

What: The Four Laws of Time with Joe AlbahariWhen: Thursday August 1st, 5:30pm - 7pmWhere: Enex 100 Seminar Room, Level 3, 100 St Georges Terrace, PerthCost: Free. All Welcome!

Joe Albahari is the author of LINQPad and C# 5.0 in a Nutshell.

Please forward this notification to everyone at work and I'll see you there.

P.S. I always suspected that the TARDIS was powered by LINQPad.

  1. Really fantastic talk tonight, not going to admit that I understood everything but it was well presented and was insightful.

    Every month we have these amazing talks yet none of them are recorded, even a smartphone propped up on books would be better than nothing.
