Using await to build cool UI tutorials

In the last post we discussed how we can build custom awaiters and showed simple example how to await for click on the Button instance.

We are going to build some more complex awaiters (for example TextBox awaiter that awaits for certain text to by typed into it) and use it together with the old Button click-awaiter to build the tutorial on how to use some imaginary app inside of the app itself.
