Parallel Processing Library for .NET 4.0

About the Topic:

We will delve into the Parallel Processing library that is provided in the .NET 4.0 framework. This new library allows for quick access to threading on the new multi-core systems computers today are utilizing. During the discussion we will talk about the benefits and drawbacks of using this library and take a look at programs before and after implementing the parallel library.
