Showcase this hands-on experience in an interview
In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to create a banking application that uses conditions and locks to ensure thread safety, practice designing programs that take advantage of multiple threads without losing data integrity, and learn how to apply multithreading to your own projects. By the end of the guided project, you will be able to create your own thread-safe Java multithreaded applications. Mutithreading is an essential part of modern programming. Almost all modern computers contain multi-core CPUs, GPUs, or even multiple CPUs. Multithreading allows us to have multiple parallel threads of execution, allowing our programs to become multiple times faster than a single threaded application. In addition, understanding parallel programming principles is essential for building many modern applications such as video games, data science, and server connections. Understanding how to create Java multithreaded applications will greatly expand your programming potential. This course works on the Rhyme platform, which allows you to have a custom Windows VM ensuring you do not have to worry about any of the setup work for your application. Students will be able to code along on their desktop and learn by coding with the instructor. At the end of the course, you will receive the files you created in the course. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
Students should have a working knowledge of how computers run programs. Students should also be able to read simple Java code containing methods.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Discover what threads are and why we need them for a modern application
Create an application in Java that uses multiple threads at once
Explore race conditions and how to avoid them
Learn how to synchronize threads in Java to create thread-safe applications
Practice using thread pools and other automatic thread management tools
Learn how to make thread work together using conditions and locks

One of the best Guided Projects I have done ever. I would like to recommend everyone to complete this course.
Nice overall, I would like however to see more depth for an Intermediate level course like this.
The instructor's speaking accent was very good and satisfactory.
I'm felling very special by learning from this course.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
How much experience do I need to do this Guided Project?
At the top of the page, you can press on the experience level for this Guided Project to view any knowledge prerequisites. For every level of Guided Project, your instructor will walk you through step-by-step.
Can I complete this Guided Project right through my web browser, instead of installing special software?
Yes, everything you need to complete your Guided Project will be available in a cloud desktop that is available in your browser.
What is the learning experience like with Guided Projects?
You'll learn by doing through completing tasks in a split-screen environment directly in your browser. On the left side of the screen, you'll complete the task in your workspace. On the right side of the screen, you'll watch an instructor walk you through the project, step-by-step.
