Lesson 7 - Parallel Class and PLINQ in C# .NET
In the previous lesson, Asynchronous Programming in C# .NET - Async and await, we learned to use asynchronous programming. In today's C# tutorial, we're going to focus on parallel programming that we've already brought up in the form of Tasks.
Since version 4, the .NET Framework includes several high-level technologies built above threads. It's a certain abstraction that allows us to take advantage of the full performance of modern processors, and at the same time, the technology eliminates some of the thread issues. These technologies together are sometimes referred to as the Parallel Framework or just PFX.
The Parallel Class
We've already encountered Tasks, which are part of the Task Parallel Library (TPL). TPL also includes the

In this tutorial, we'll get to know the Parallel class, which allows us to run e.g. a multi-threaded for loop. Finally, we'll run a parallel LINQ query.
