Java Concurrency, 2/e

Video description

9+ Hours of Video Instruction

Java Concurrency LiveLessons, Second Edition teaches you how to develop high-quality concurrent software applications and reusable frameworks through the use of patterns, object-oriented design and functional programming techniques, and Java language features, including Java 8 lambda expressions, parallel streams, and completable futures.

Description
The confluence of multicore and distributed-core processors, inexpensive mass storage, ubiquitous connectivity, and commodity software platforms is driving the need for software engineers and programmers who understand how to develop concurrent software for client devices that connect to cloud computing platforms. Despite many improvements in processors, storage, and networks, however, developing quality software on time and on budget remains difficult. Moreover, developing high-quality concurrent software apps and reusable services is even harder.
Java Concurrency LiveLessons describes by example how to apply patterns and frameworks to alleviate the complexity of developing concurrent software via the use of object-oriented design and functional programming techniques and Java language features and class libraries. Many Java application examples are used throughout the course to showcase pattern-oriented design and programming techniques for concurrent software.

Skill Level
Intermediate to advanced

What You Will Learn
  • Recognize the inherent and accidental complexities involved with developing concurrent software for Java clients and servers.
  • Understand how pattern-oriented software architecture techniques can and cannot help to alleviate this complexity.
  • Apply key pattern-oriented software architecture techniques to develop reusable concurrent software using Java object-oriented design and functional programming language features and class libraries.
  • Know where to find additional sources of information on how to successfully apply pattern-oriented software architecture techniques to concurrent software in Java.
Who Should Take This Course
Developers looking for practical coverage of developing pattern-oriented concurrent software with Java

Course Requirements
  • You should be familiar with general object-oriented design and programming concepts such as encapsulation, abstraction, polymorphism, extensibility, and the Unified Modeling Language (UML).
  • You should be familiar with fundamental object-oriented programming language features such as classes, inheritance, dynamic binding, and generic types available in Java, C++, and C#.
