Free Online Book about Threading in C#

Filed under: .NET,C#,Software Development — Larry Parker @ 6:17 am

I just came across a free online book about threading in C# on www.albahari.com.  The main page is here and you can download the entire PDF here.

The online book is a bit different from Chapter 19 (Threading) from the book C# 3.0 in a Nutshell, although I’m not sure if this was written before or after the book.

The topic of threading is broken down into four sections in the online book:

  • Getting Started (overview and concepts)
  • Basic Synchronization (e.g. locking, thread safety, and wait handles)
  • Using Threads (e.g. thread pooling, and timers)
  • Advanced Topics (e.g. non-blocking synchronization, and wait and pulse)

Lots of good threading examples and discussions, and well worth checking out.
