Is there any possibility to parallelize tasks?
For example npm restoring and downloading some additional files?

    It is not supported 1st class but you can try to do some scripting like this:

      exePath: C:\BuildTools_Full.exe
    - ps: Start-Job -Name download -ScriptBlock {(New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile($env:downloadUrl, $env:exePath)}
    - cmd: npm install
    - ps: Wait-Job -Name download

    here is the build worked for me. I did not tested that on really heavy npm install in parallel with big file download, so I do not know how much build speed it increased. Let us know how it works for you.
