Advanced Java 8 Concurrent Patterns

by Jose Paumard

Concurrency is a hard to master topic. This Java course takes you from the basics you already know, (runnable and synchronization) to the next level: the java.util.concurrent API.

What you'll learn

This course, Advanced Java 8 Concurrent Patterns is an in-depth presentation of advanced fundamentals you'll need to understand to write efficient concurrent applications, that support heavy concurrency and provide high throughput. You'll learn about how you can improve the quality of your concurrent code, by using sophisticated concurrent tools that allow for smooth lock acquisition and fault tolerancy. You'll also be introduced to advanced data structures, such as the copy on write arrays, the concurrent blocking queues, the concurrent skip lists and concurrent hashmaps. By the end of this course, you will understand how to use cyclic barriers, count down latches and semaphores, and how to atomic variables to write non-locking code. All of this will help you on your journey to write better applications.

About the author

Passionate about programming computers for over 20 years, Jose made his debut in assembler and C, C for SIMD parallel machines before adopting Java as an object-oriented language, indispensable to most major modern applications. He brings his expertise and capacity for analysis and synthesis to many projects, mainly in the lower layers, close to the data, but also on complex UI design, or in the browser.
