The Windows Runtime enables two types of threads for Windows Store apps. This talk will take you on a deep dive into the world of user interface (UI) threads and background work threads. You’ll learn how the Windows Runtime threading model works, what the restrictions are around the threading model, and how to properly use UI and background work threads.
For more information, check out this course on Microsoft Virtual Academy:

  • Martyn, I made a point of not going to the party the night before, so I could handle the threads in the morning Smiley The chocolates was a nice touch, though Smiley


    Very informative and well-paced talk. Thanks for the depth and breadth of the information presented. This talk is an obvious proof that management positions don't necessarily require a lobotomy <g>





    p.s. my first MSFT conference was in 1993 as well, but in San Francisco and it was focused on the graphics (WinG). Ah, the memories Smiley

  • @zxtt:Thanks! I think the party might have been more fun than the talk Smiley The fun thing about running the WinRT team is that I get to be involved with these issues at this layer of the system. WinG brings back memories.
