This course teaches learners (industry professionals and students) the fundamental concepts of concurrent programming in the context of Java 8. Concurrent programming enables developers to efficiently and correctly mediate the use of shared resources in parallel programs. By the end of this course, you will learn how to use basic concurrency constructs in Java such as threads, locks, critical sections, atomic variables, isolation, actors, optimistic concurrency and concurrent collections, as well as their theoretical foundations (e.g., progress guarantees, deadlock, livelock, starvation, linearizability).

TOP REVIEWS FROM CONCURRENT PROGRAMMING IN JAVA
Very practical course, it gave me understanding details about concurrency I've never heard before.
Short and easy to understand multi-threading with locks, object-based isolation, Actors, Atomic values and optimistic concurrency.
Great course. With minimal effort you can learn about important concepts and see immediate results regarding the actual speedup you can achieve using concurrent programming.
The course was niece. It could have made of use of a programming language from scrath rather than depending on the pre-built library.
