Using the Task Parallel Library and PLINQ to Go Parallel

With more and more computers using a multi-core processor, the free lunch of increased clock speeds and the inherent performance gains are over. Software developers must instead make sure their applications take use of all the cores available in an efficient manner. New features in .NET 4.0 mean that managed code developers too can join the party.

The .NET thread pool's functionality for executing multiple tasks sequentially in a wave or group is insufficient. Luckily, a Visual C++.NET helper method that uses other types within the System.Threading namespace provides this batch-execution model.

C# provides a mechanism for defining declarative tags, called attributes, which you can place on certain entities in your source code to specify additional information. The information that attributes contain can be retrieved at run time through reflection. You can use or you can define your own custom attributes.
