Functional languages help developers support concurrency by encouraging immutable data structures that can be passed between threads without having to worry about a shared state, all while avoiding side effects.
Functional Concurrency in .NET teaches readers how to build concurrent and scalable programs in .NET using the functional paradigm. This intermediate-level guide is aimed at developers, architects, and passionate computer programmers.
* In-depth explanations
* Hands-on examples
* Step-by-step instructions
This book is for readers with solid knowledge of a mainstream programming language, preferably C# or F#.
