What you'll learn

Play by Play is a series in which top technologists work through a problem in real time, unrehearsed and unscripted. In this course, Play by Play: Converting Synchronous Calls to Asynchronous in ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core, Dan Wahlin and John Papa talk about the benefits of asynchronous code, C#'s async/await keywords, and how they can be used to convert synchronous code to asynchronous in ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core. Learn the key differences between synchronous and asynchronous code, the role of async/await in C#, how to convert synchronous Entity Framework Core code to asynchronous, and wow to call into ASP.NET Core APIs using Angular. By the end of this Play by Play, you’ll see how easy it is to use asynchronous coding techniques in your ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework Core code bases.
