Book overview

This book aims to address one of the fundamental units of .NET programming - the thread. A strong understanding of the role threads play in program execution, how multiple threads can interact in order to make efficient programs, and the pitfalls to beware of when developing multithreaded applications, are all core to a developer's ability to develop effective VB.NET programs. This book will cover how .NET applications are executed, the lifecycle of a thread in .NET, how the .NET framework uses threads, how threads work in an event-driven environment, how we can create threads, how we can avoid race conditions and deadlocks, how the activity of multiple threads can be synchronized, and how to debug multithreaded applications.

  Who is this book for?

Threads are fundamental to the way GUI and server applications operate - if your code is running in a GUI, then you're already writing code in a threaded environment. If your code runs in an ASP.NET page, then you're already running in a threaded environment. This book aims to cover the tricky issues of threading in .NET, and particularly to do so from the perspective of VB.NET developers. Threading is by nature not easy to grasp, but a necessary step towards mastery of the .NET platform.
