Description

If you’re one of many developers still uncertain about concurrent and multithreaded development, this practical cookbook will change your mind. With more than 85 code-rich recipes in this updated second edition, author Stephen Cleary demonstrates parallel processing and asynchronous programming techniques using libraries and language features in .NET and C# 8.0.

Concurrency is now more common in responsive and scalable application development, but it’s still 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 solutions work, these recipes help you:
Get up to speed on concurrency and async and parallel programmingUse async and await for asynchronous operationsEnhance your code with asynchronous streamsExplore parallel programming with .NET’s Task Parallel LibraryCreate dataflow pipelines with .NET’s TPL Dataflow libraryUnderstand the capabilities that System.Reactive builds on top of LINQUtilize threadsafe and immutable collectionsLearn how to conduct unit testing with concurrent codeMake the thread pool work for youEnable clean, cooperative cancellationExamine scenarios for combining concurrent approachesDive into asynchronous-friendly object-oriented programmingRecognize and write adapters for code using older asynchronous styles
