In C#, a method declared async won't block within a synchronous process, in case of you're using I/O based operations (e.g. web access, working with files, ...). The result of such async marked methods may be awaited via the use of the awaitkeyword. An async method can return void, Task or Tas...
Properties combine the class data storage of fields with the accessibility of methods. Sometimes it may be hard to decide whether to use a property, a property referencing a field, or a method referencing a field. As a rule of thumb: Properties should be used without an internal field if th...
A thread is a part of a program that can execute independently of other parts. It can perform tasks simultaneously with other threads. Multithreading is a feature that enables programs to perform concurrent processing so that more than one operation can be done at a time. For example, you can use...
The using keyword is both a directive (this topic) and a statement. For the using statement (i.e. to encapsulate the scope of an IDisposable object, ensuring that outside of that scope the object becomes cleanly disposed) please see Using Statement.
Purpose And Use Cases The purpose of the Task Parallel Library is to simplify the process of writing and maintaining multithreaded and parallel code. Some Use Cases*: Keeping a UI responsive by running background work on separate task Distributing workload Allowing a client application ...
Typically a struct is used only when performance is very important. Since value types live on the stack, they can be accessed much quicker than classes. However, the stack has much less room than the heap, so structs should be kept small (Microsoft recommends structs take up no more than 16 bytes)...
Performance-critical applications in managed .NET applications can be severely impacted by the GC. When the GC runs, all other threads are suspended until it completes. For this reason, it is recommended to carefully evaluate the GC processes and determine how to minimize when it runs.
When you use the yield keyword in a statement, you indicate that the method, operator, or get accessor in which it appears is an iterator. Using yield to define an iterator removes the need for an explicit extra class (the class that holds the state for an enumeration) when you implement the IEnumer...
One of MEF's big advantages over other technologies that support the inversion-of-control pattern is that it supports resolving dependencies that are not known at design-time, without needing much (if any) configuration. All examples require a reference to the System.ComponentModel.Composition as...
An event is a notification that something has occurred (such as a mouse click) or, in some cases, is about to occur (such as a price change). Classes can define events and their instances (objects) may raise these events. For instance, a Button may contain a Click event that gets raised when a user...

LINQ is an acronym which stands for Language INtegrated Query. It is a concept which integrates a query language by offering a consistent model for working with data across various kinds of data sources and formats; you use the same basic coding patterns to query and transform data in XML documents,...

Expression Trees are Expressions arranged in a treelike data structure. Each node in the tree is a representation of an expression, an expression being code. An In-Memory representation of a Lambda expression would be an Expression tree, which holds the actual elements (i.e. code) of the query, but ...
