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).

TOP REVIEWS FROM CONCURRENT PROGRAMMING IN JAVA
The course was niece. It could have made of use of a programming language from scrath rather than depending on the pre-built library.
It was a really interesting course where the things were presented in a very simplified manner in which I could learn the topics in a short span of time.
The material is badly organized, the course is worse than the course on parallel programming. Concurrent library could have been covered more wide
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.
