Threading is one of those topics that is both a little complicated and very misunderstood. It seems it is a topic of extremes. Developers either don’t use it all or overuse it completely. Adding multi-threading capability to your application is not for the faint of heart, but it’s also not always useful. This session introduces you to threads in .NET and how to properly use them; more importantly when to properly use them. There are plenty of code samples here showing you various threading techniques, and hopefully demystifying what is otherwise a pretty advanced topic.
