We will start this WPF chapter by first creating a single thread version of our CodeBreaking application. This will give us a starting point and show us the limitations of running everything on a single thread. We will then refactor our application to use two threads, and then many threads, to show the improved performance and capabilities.
As mentioned before, we will be doing all of this in a WPF application instead of Windows Forms. This will require us to work with the
BackgroundWorker component entirely in code instead of being able to use it at design time.
