Concurrent .NET

The Concurrent .NET training course course introduces you to a variety of constructs for simultaneous processing in .NET. From the tried-and-true world of threads and mutexes, to more modern technologies like PLINQ and the Task Parallel Library (TPL), you’ll learn how and when to execute code in parallel.

This course assumes prior .NET fundamentals knowledge. This course assumes prior .NET fundamentals knowledge. If you are new to .NET, we recommend beginning with Essential C# and .NET Fundamentals courses.
