Refactoring for Asynchronous Execution on Mobile Devices

1355 Northwest Everett Street
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



To improve responsiveness, developers often use asynchronous programming architecture. In the post-PC era, asynchronous programming is even more in demand because mobile and wearable devices have limited resources and access the network excessively. One current development task is refactoring long-running, blocking synchronous code (for example, accessing the Web, a cloud, a database, or a file system) into nonblocking asynchronous code. Danny will guide us through the challenges of retrofitting code from synchronous to asynchronous while presenting program analyses as well as showcasing a growing, practical tool set for this process.

  • Speaker - Danny Dig, Assistant Professor in the School of EECS at Oregon State University & Adjunct Professor at University of Illinois
