Multithreaded, Parallel, and Async Programming
Nobody enjoys working with an application that is slow and sluggish during its execution. Moreover, nobody enjoys starting a task in an application (perhaps initiated by the clicking of a toolbar item) that prevents other parts of the program from being as responsive as possible. Before the release of .NET, building applications that had the ability to perform multiple tasks required authoring very complex C++ code that made use of the Windows threading APIs. Thankfully, the .NET platform provides a number of ways for you to build software that can perform complex operations on unique paths of execution, with far fewer pain points.
