Most modern machines have dual core processors. This means that multitasking is built right into your computer's hardware. Using both cores means your applications can process data faster and be more responsive to users. But to fully exploit this in your applications, you need to write multithreading code, which means learning some challenging new concepts.
This book will guide you through everything you need to start writing multithreaded C# applications. You will see how to use processes and threads in C#, .NET Framework features for concurrent programming, sharing memory space between threads, and much more. The book is full of practical, interesting examples and working code.
This book begins with the fundamental concepts such as processes, threads, mono-processor systems, multi-processor systems. As the book progresses, the readers get a clear understanding of starting, joining, pausing and restarting threads. The readers get a better understanding of the simple techniques associated with parallelism. There are short exercises at the end of every chapter for the readers to perform.
The book also includes several practical parallelism algorithms and data structures used for illustration, and best practices and practical topics like debugging and performance.
