Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stephen Cleary has established himself as a key expert on asynchrony and parallelism in C#. This book clearly and concisely conveys the most important points and principles developers need to understand to get started and be successful with these technologies." - Stephen Toub, Principal Architect, Microsoft


"The breadth of techniques covered and the cookbook format make this the ideal reference book for modern .NET concurrency." -Jon Skeet, Senior Software Engineer, Google

"The next big thing in computing is making massive parallelism accessible to mere mortals. Developers have more power than ever before, but expressing concurrency is still a challenge for many. Stephen turns his attention to this problem, helping us all better understand concurrency, threading, reactive programming models, parallelism, and much more in an easy-to-read but complete reference." -Scott Hanselman, Principal Program Manager, ASP.NET and Azure Web Tools, Microsoft

From the Author

I had one major goal in writing this book: to cover modern approaches to concurrency. There are a hundred books out there that describe threads and all the various synchronization primitives in excruciating detail; this is not one of those. This book focuses specifically on how code should be written, not how code could be written.

This book does contain an introduction to concurrency (multithreading, asynchronous programming, etc). However, it is not an introduction to C# or .NET. I do expect my readers to understand delegates, lambda expressions, LINQ, OOP, etc. If you need help in these areas, there are other great books that cover these topics far better than I could do.

By focusing only on modern coding practices, and by avoiding "fluff", I've kept the book short. It's under 200 pages, a portable size. The vast majority of these pages are recipes written with an extremely practical mindset, so they can be used as a ready reference for the modern developer.
