If you're one of the many developers uncertain about concurrent and multithreaded development, this practical cookbook will change your mind. With more than 75 code-rich recipes, author Stephen Cleary demonstrates parallel processing and asynchronous programming techniques, using libraries and language features in .NET 4.5 and C# 5.0.rnrnConcurrency is becoming more common in responsive and scalable application development, but it’s been extremely difficult to code. The detailed solutions in this cookbook show you how modern tools raise the level of abstraction, making concurrency much easier than before. Complete with ready-to-use code and discussions about how and why the solution works, you get recipes for using:rn* async and await for asynchronous operationsrn* Parallel programming with the Task Parallel Libraryrn* The TPL Dataflow library for creating dataflow pipelinesrn* Capabilities that Reactive Extensions build on top of LINQrn* Unit testing with concurrent codern* Interop scenarios for combining concurrent approachesrn* Immutable, threadsafe, and producer/consumer collectionsrn* Cancellation support in your concurrent codern* Asynchronous-friendly Object-Oriented Programmingrn* Thread synchronization for accessing datarn
