Most of the peoples are confusing with Async and Parallel programming, what it is? What is Motivation behind this etc..?
Why Asynchronous ?
With today’s application’s growing more and more connected and also potentially
long running tasks or blocking operations such as Network I/O or Database Operations.So it’s very important to hide the latency of these operations by starting them in background and returning back to the user interface quickly as possible. Here Asynchronous come in to the picture, Responsiveness
Why parallel programming?
With today’s data sets growing larger and computations growing more complex. So it’s very important to reduce the execution time of these CPU-bound operations, in this case, by dividing the workload into chunks and then executing those chunks simultaneously. We can call this as “Parallel” .
Obviously it will give high performance to our application.
