Under The Influence(of code) Abhijeet Patel's blog

No code today. Instead, here is a link to a great video from Channel9 I found, which takes a deep dive into the underlying mechanics of how TPL does what it does and some of the enhancements that the thread pool has undergone.  Albeit a year old, this video goes into details of the work stealing algorithm and local thread queues that helps increase throughput.

From the perspective of being a consumer of TPL, you can be blissfully ignorant of what happens behind the scenes, but understanding the mechanics and some of the design decisions that the team made can help gain a deeper appreciation of TPL which ultimately can help write more thoughtful code.

I was impressed by the clarity in which the concepts were presented and explained.  Plan on setting aside about an hour to watch this video, but every minute is time well spent!
