Hi Shamil

Yes, I do have a "Pro" license for LINQPad but I had no idea you could use it for this level of code. I've only used it to find out LINQ queries.

I've read some free chapters from the previous book - very good - but didn't buy the book. Perhaps it is time now to spend some money.

As for the EF code generation: Why not ask the author, Joseph Albahari? As I understand it, he will be happy to answer.

Hi Gustav --

Yes, I have run this code in LINQPad 4.42.1, I have got purchased a Premium version to have Intellisense etc. 
LINQPad is a great C# learning/mastering/"code snippeting"/experimenting tool. 
But you know that LINQPad is a great tool AFAIK :)

I have put .Sleep(1000) in Test1 class Setup method to show that in this case Test2 runs first and in parallel - did you mean that?

Thank you, just a bit maybe - when I'm reading "C# 4.0 in a Nutshell" by Joseph and Ben Albahari I'm feeling myself as a 1st grade pupil - the concepts and techniques of modern C# (functional)  parallel programming they present in many parts of heir book are so advanced...

BTW, I still can't get how LINQPad dynamically builds ADO.NET EF model/assembly from given MS SQL database connection - have you seen/read anywhere how it's done, what (third party) .NET classlibs they use?

Thank you.
