.NET memory allocation profiling and Tasks

The .NET Framework blog published this morning a guest post from yours truly on .NET Memory Allocation Profiling with Visual Studio 2012.  As you’re trying to improve the performance, throughput, and memory usage of code that uses Tasks, the described profiler in Visual Studio can be a valuable tool in your tool belt (of course, the example I use in that post to highlight the profiler’s capabilities is one that uses Task and async/await).  I hope you find the post helpful.
