This course teaches learners (industry professionals and students) the fundamental concepts of parallel programming in the context of Java 8. Parallel programming enables developers to use multicore computers to make their applications run faster by using multiple processors at the same time. By the end of this course, you will learn how to use popular parallel Java frameworks (such as ForkJoin, Stream, and Phaser) to write parallel programs for a wide range of multicore platforms including servers, desktops, or mobile devices, while also learning about their theoretical foundations including computation graphs, ideal parallelism, parallel speedup, Amdahl's Law, data races, and determinism.

来自PARALLEL PROGRAMMING IN JAVA的热门评论
This is a great course in parallel programming. The videos were very clear, summaries reinforced the video material and the programming projects and quizzes were challenging but not overwhelming.
Excellent Course.I always wanted a good course on java concurrency and parallel programming.And finish->async, isolated, forAsync constructs are awesome.I have learnt much from this course.
Very useful course about parallel programming theory and practice.\n\nCould be less examples with custom libraries instead of standard java features looking to practical usage at work.
Great course. Introduces Parallel Programming in Java in a gentle way.\n\nKudos to Professor Vivek Sarkar for simplifying complex concepts and presenting them in an elegant manner.
It was actually quite fun. I particularly enjoyed the Two Sigma interviews, which gave me a better understanding about how the course concepts are applied in business.
Very relevant concepts, explained beautifully by a very experienced professor. The assignments were good, but they could involve more programming for more practice!
Introduction to theoretical concepts was good, but not very deep. The exercises didn't really contribute much to my understanding of the course material in general.
Instructor is awesome. However instead of sharing ready libraries for parallelism (like forall loop) in section 3, native codes should be used for forall loops etc.
The combination of quiz and programming assignment helps understanding the course in a quite nice way. I will finish up the other two courses for sure.
This course explain the concepts in a great way but the exercises\n\nneeds to be more rich with problems to enhance our understanding to the concepts.
The concepts like thinking about work,span,cp.amhdals law very very helpful. Although i believe there should be more examples wit code as in quiz.
Great material, well arranged course flow, willing teacher, and nice project snippets. More coding samples and projects could have been included.
