Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I wrote a brief essay (for no particular reason other than personal understanding) on the concept of multi-threaded applications. I myself am still getting familiar with the concept of threads, and wrote this as a way of taking notes to basically teach myself. In this paper, I explain a comparison between a "multi-threaded process" and a "multi-lane highway" where each lane is a thread, and each car is a line of code. I explain some scenarios in multi-threaded apps and how to relate to that scenario with the highway example.

Is this something I can post on StackOverflow and ask for corrections? I need to make sure I'm not making anything up here, and that I have the important topics covered. It's just one page in length - 4 paragraphs.

No, but you can ask specific questions about concepts you're not sure about, although such questions are probably better asked on – Robert Harvey Feb 16 '12 at 20:41

Stack Overflow doesn't do proofreading of articles as Q&A, sorry.

If there's anything technical that you need to clarify, you can try to phrase it as a question, like any other programming question that you'd have.

As a quick example, you could ask along the lines of:

Am I right to say that a multi-threaded process is like a multi-lane highway, where each lane is a thread and each car is a line of code? [... elaborate on this comparison you're making, so on and so forth]

Stack Exchange is great for specific answers to specific problems: critiquing or reviewing people's work doesn't lend itself well to the format, and if I recall correctly, it's off-topic almost everywhere except Code Review.SE and Writers.SE.

If there's something you'd like to get help understanding, feel free to ask that question, though: Stack Overflow if code, Programmers if more high-level, conceptual stuff.
