70-483 - Multithreaded programming RRS feed

  • Question


  • Does the 70-483 require you to know older multithreaded programming concepts like asynchronous delegates and using the Threading namespace or will I solely be quizzed on using newer concepts, like the TPL, tasks, async and await?

    Thanks!

  • From the exam description page, note that the topics include "spawn threads by using ThreadPool". In order to properly understand the ThreadPool, you should have at least some understanding of the System.Threading.Thread. So, in summary, this means that yes, you do need to know at least a little bit of the "older" multithreaded programming concepts if you want to completely cover the topics that are officially included in the exam.

    Note that this is what can be inferred from the "public" page. Those of us who have taken the exam are not allowed to reveal wether the exam did actually present any question on this topic or not.
