2.1 Futures: Tasks with Return Values

Welcome to Module 2! In this module, we will learn about approaches to parallelism that have been inspired by functional programming. Advocates of parallel functional programming have argued for decades that functional parallelism can eliminate many hard-to-detect bugs that can occur with imperative parallelism. We will learn about futures, memoization, and streams, as well as data races, a notorious class of bugs that can be avoided with functional parallelism. We will also learn Java APIs for functional parallelism, including the Fork/Join framework and the Stream API’s.
