In this chapter, we learned some useful techniques for improving client application performance. We started by exploring some different uses of
await in the ViewModel of a WPF application. In that project, we saw that awaiting
Task.WhenAll does not block the main thread, which keeps the UI responsive to user input. We discussed how
Task.Factory.StartNew can be used to call synchronous code from asynchronous code, making it easier to introduce managed threading to existing applications. We finished up the chapter by learning some techniques to update the UI thread from other threads without causing exceptions at runtime.
You should be feeling more comfortable using
await, and the TPL in your code after reading this chapter. Try taking what you have learned here and start adding some
async code to your own client applications. For additional reading on
await, you can check out this C# article on Microsoft Docs: https://docs.microsoft...
