@Beautus S Gumede In a highly performant scalable web app, async/await allows .NET to momentarily give the underlying thread to a different incoming request while waiting on IO (such as a database call). It makes .NET prolly the most scalable stack out there when done right. NodeJS does similar things with its singlethreaded event loop.
