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.

Concurrency 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:

async and await for asynchronous operationsParallel programming with the Task Parallel LibraryThe Tpl Dataflow library for creating dataflow pipelinesCapabilities that Reactive Extensions build on top of LinqUnit testing with concurrent codeInterop scenarios for combining concurrent approachesImmutable, threadsafe, and producer/consumer collectionsCancellation support in your concurrent codeAsynchronous-friendly Object-Oriented ProgrammingThread synchronization for accessing data
