This video explains what a Windows/.NET thread is and examines its resource overhead. Based on our findings, we create a strategy for designing applications and components to use threads effectively. This video discusses some patterns in common use today and why they should be avoided. Other videos in this course address useful patterns and best practices for how to effectively use threads to build scalable, responsive, and fast applications and components.
