О курсе

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). Why take this course? • It is important for you to be aware of the theoretical foundations of concurrency to avoid common but subtle programming errors. • Java 8 has modernized many of the concurrency constructs since the early days of threads and locks. • During the course, you will have online access to the instructor and mentors to get individualized answers to your questions posted on the forums. • Each of the four modules in the course includes an assigned mini-project that will provide you with the necessary hands-on experience to use the concepts learned in the course on your own, after the course ends. The desired learning outcomes of this course are as follows: • Concurrency theory: progress guarantees, deadlock, livelock, starvation, linearizability • Use of threads and structured/unstructured locks in Java • Atomic variables and isolation • Optimistic concurrency and concurrent collections in Java (e.g., concurrent queues, concurrent hashmaps) • Actor model in Java Mastery of these concepts will enable you to immediately apply them in the context of concurrent Java programs, and will also help you master other concurrent programming system that you may encounter in the future (e.g., POSIX threads, .NET threads)....

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.

Excellent way to refresh what I learned some years ago in Operator System. Also I won a small hands-on experience using locks, isolation and high level concurrency in Java.

Only thing I missed are more optional exercises, otherwise a great course.

Better than Parallel Programming

I would prefer more assignments.

I feel that we need way more practice in writing concurrent code than what is provided in the mini projects, This course needs to include more challenges ranging from easy to hard for it to be more effective. In the current scenario, faced with a challenge, I would not be confident in tackling it with concurrent programming, but I expected to be confident, since this is a college course offering.

I wasted a lot of time because of the poor quality of test evaluation (autograder). Resubmit of the same code often means different results in autograder.

On the other hand, the course shows basic concepts of concurrent programming and opens themes for further studies.

I feel the proposed exercises should be more involved and "in small pieces" in order to engage and dive better into the introduced concepts.

Programming assignment is some what easy, I think it my be better to require student to finished the complete code.

Was expecting to learn more advanced topics, including initiating concurrency in systems.

passing test cases are mostly luck T_T

The concepts are explained well. Quizzes and mini project could be better. Somehow the assignments and quizzes were not to standard. Mostly fixing one line changes. Autograder of assignment can be improved.

The auto grader is very inconsistent which ruined my experience of the course.

Enjoyed the lectures and they were very informative.

Too much time spent always submitting the same solutions because the autograder doesn't work!

autograder is buggy
