Description

Utilizing multithreaded principles is crucial for building fast processing and performant applications. In this course, Building Multithreaded C# Applications with the Task Parallel Library, you’ll learn foundational knowledge to efficiently apply the parallel programming and multithreaded principles to build fast and solid applications. First, you’ll explore fundamentals of multithreading and how it fits into your .NET applications, and how it ties together with the task parallel library. Next, you’ll discover how parallel programming is different from asynchronous programming and how to use the parallel extensions to perform fast computations, which utilizes all your available processing power. Finally, you’ll learn how to adapt in advanced scenarios, and where deeper knowledge of multithreading may be required. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of how to apply the parallel programming principles in any type of .NET application.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Filip Ekberg, and welcome to my course, Building Multithreaded C# Applications with the Task Parallel Library. I'm a principal consultant and CEO at a consultant agency operating out of Gothenburg in Sweden. I started the company a few years ago and focus on building fast, powerful, and easy‑to‑maintain solutions. This course is for those of you that want to build fast and better applications by applying parallel principles. We'll cover all the topics that you need to understand to effectively build multi threaded applications in C#. This includes using the parallel operations from the Task Parallel Library, such as Parallel.For, Parallel.Foreach, Parallel.Invoke, and Parallel LINQ. Also, understanding how to use parallel and asynchronous principles together. Finally, you'll get an insight into advanced topics which will teach you about thread safety, sharing resources, deadlocking, and atomic operations. By the end of this course, you will know how to effectively build multithreaded applications in C# by using the Task Parallel Library. You will gain a good understanding of how parallel programming affects the application, the common issues you may run into, and how to adapt to more complex scenarios. Before beginning the course, I would strongly recommend that you first take the course, Applying Asynchronous Programming in C#. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn how to build fast and powerful applications with the course, Building Multithreaded C# Applications with the Task Parallel Library, at Pluralsight.
