Posted by mruwe at August 24 2015, 10:33 AM

Fellow .Net Users,

Is it just me or has summer gone extremely quickly this year? It seems like fall is quickly coming upon us with the weather turning a bit more on the cooler side and activities like the heartland developer’s conference right around the corner. Speaking of which, do you have your ticket? If not make sure to go to http://www.heartlanddc.com/ and sign up!

It’s also the end of the month already which means that it’s time for another .Net UG meeting. Our next meeting will take place on Thursday August 27th, starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drink will be served by our sponsor starting 15-20 minutes before the meeting.

Location:
Election Systems and Software 11128 John Galt Blvd – Suite 100
Map

Directions:
Located off of Interstate 80 & L Street. Turn South on 108th Street and West on John Galt Blvd and look for the Five Story Building.

Please park in any of the parking stall on either side of the building, there will be a representative from ES&S in the lobby to guide you to the conference room

Topic:
Concurrent Collections in C#.
Multithreaded applications often suffer from issues when several threads need to access the same resource. Fixing those issues often results in an overly complicated, restrictive, fragile, and unreliable application that is prone to deadlocks and other multithreading hazards. The .NET Framework 4 introduces the System.Collections.Concurrent namespace, which includes several collection classes that are both thread-safe and scalable. Multiple threads can safely and efficiently add or remove items from these collections, without requiring additional synchronization in user code. Join us as we explore these collections, dig deep into the correct use of ConcurrentDictionary, and introduce you to producer-consumer scenarios and the blocking collection.
