This course, Advanced Java 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.
