With parallel computing, you can leverage multiple compute resources to tackle larger problems in a shorter amount of time. In this course, the second in the Parallel and Concurrent Programming with Java series, take a deeper dive into the key mechanisms for writing concurrent and parallel programs. Instructors Olivia and Barron Stone make these (often abstract) concepts down-to-earth, demonstrating key ideas using common kitchen activities. Learn all about synchronization, thread pools, asynchronous tasks, evaluating parallel performance, designing parallel programs, and more. Upon wrapping up this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of how to parallelize a sequential program.

Topics include:

  • Using a condition variable
  • Using a semaphore
  • Preventing a race condition
  • Use cases for a Barrier vs. a CountDownLatch
  • Drawing a directed acyclic graph
  • Using a future
  • Steps in a divide-and-conquer algorithm
  • Evaluating parallel performance
  • Designing parallel programs
