dnrTV Show #16: Carl Franklin on Asynchronous Programming in VB 2005
Carl steps out from behind the microphone to demonstrate using the BackgroundWorker component to copy a file three different ways: code behind the button the old way and the new way, and then creating a component. Along the way you learn about threading issues with Windows Forms and how to deal with them.
Carl Franklin has been a figurehead in the VB community since the very early days when he wrote for Visual Basic Programmers Journal. He authored the Q&A column of that magazine as well as many feature articles for VBPJ and other magazines. He has authored two books for John Wiley & Sons on sockets programming in VB, and in 1994 he helped create the very first web site for VB developers, Carl & Garys VB Home Page. Carl is also the MSDN Regional Director for Connecticut(www.microsoftregionaldirectors.com), an MVP for Visual Basic, host of .NET Rocks! and Mondays, and CEO of Pwop Productions, which provides podcasting services.
