If you're a [web] developer, the next couple of years will prove to be interesting times. A November 2012 survey  confirms that Internet users,
at least shoppers, are expecting instant gratification in their online experiences. The survey reports that 61% of the surveyed shoppers abandoned
a web page after waiting at least 30 seconds .
What is a [web] developer to do? After all, we have multiple sources of data that must be accessed to render a page: profiles, catalogs, metrics,
comments, and histories just to name a few. Accessing all these data sources takes time. Let's also not forget about the latency of making the round-trip
from the browser to the server.
Now be honest. As developers we always have a solution even before we completely understand the problem. Weren't you thinking "obviously asynchronous processing"
as you read the above paragraphs? Asynchronous processing would be my first thought and in this presentation, I'd like to look at using a technique called
Futures and explore how using them allows us to write asynchronous code that parallels the synchronous solution .
 I'll admit that, in general, 30 seconds it really a long time so, maybe, picture all this happening on a mobile browser and play along for the moment.
 With some caveats of course.

This month there will be no GROK talk. Immediately following the main speaker and pizza we will be holding another CINARC (Cincinnati Software Architecture Group).
This session will feature more discussion on topics chosen the night of the meeting. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss issues of software architecture
relevant to the members of the community.
On deck for the June 25th CINNUG is Mark Haskamp on An Overview of Visual Studio Tools for Git.
