With IAsyncEnumerable being introduced in .NET Core 3, it's not surprising that developers might want to leverage their existing knowledge of Linq operations when working with async streams.

In this episode, Bart De Smet comes on to talk about the System.Linq.Async nuget package that adds some common Linq query operators to IAsyncEnumerable.
