Overview of this book

.NET has included managed threading capabilities since the beginning, but early techniques had inherent risks: memory leaks, thread synchronization issues, and deadlocks. This book will help you avoid those pitfalls and leverage the modern constructs available in .NET 6 and C# 10, while providing recommendations on patterns and best practices for parallelism and concurrency. Parallel, concurrent, and asynchronous programming are part of every .NET application today, and it becomes imperative for modern developers to understand how to effectively use these techniques. This book will teach intermediate-level .NET developers how to make their applications faster and more responsive with parallel programming and concurrency in .NET and C# with practical examples. The book starts with the essentials of multi-threaded .NET development and explores how the language and framework constructs have evolved along with .NET. You will later get to grips with the different options available today in .NET 6, followed by insights into best practices, debugging, and unit testing. By the end of this book, you will have a deep understanding of why, when, and how to employ parallelism and concurrency in any .NET application.

Parallel programming and concurrency have become prevalent in modern software development. In this book, you will learn how to leverage the latest asynchronous, parallel, and concurrency features in .NET 6 when building your next application. We will explore the power of multithreaded C# development patterns and practices. By exploring the benefits and challenges of threading in .NET through concise, real-world examples, choosing the right option for your project will become second nature.

You have many choices when introducing multithreading to a new or existing .NET application. The goal of this book is to not only teach you how to use parallel programming and concurrency in C# and .NET but also to help you understand which of the constructs to choose for a given scenario. Whether you are developing for desktop, mobile, the web, or the cloud, performance and responsiveness are key to the success of an application. This book will help every type of C# developer to scale their applications to their users’ needs and avoid the pitfalls often encountered with multithreaded development.
