Great course. With minimal effort you can learn about important concepts and see immediate results regarding the actual speedup you can achieve using concurrent programming.
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.

The feedback will be similar to the first course, parallel programming in java, such that the course contents are good. The lecturer can explain the theory very well. But the homework is just repeating of the demo video. I hope we can have the opportunity to practice the actual thread creation, joining, etc. instead of using the API call.

some suggestions: *the assignment is too easy.*
perhaps make more mini projects with different situations to solve:
parallelize simple program (more!!) / identify and fix deadlock / livelock / improve performance for bad implementation)
thanks for your great effort in offering this course! GREAT JOB!

Generally, provided material is very usefull in modern programming experience.
Something I would change in the course program are instructions to use custom PCDP library. This hardly can be used in real-life projects in future. Some original Java constructions is a better choice for me.

Good refresher on concurrency from my OS class. The concurrent minimum spanning tree was interesting, but the assignment for it has a pretty bad grading system. Lectures are clear, except the linearizability part.

Actors could use a bit more time and i would add like small coding exercises in the middle may be ? Also, grading could be a bit ore lenient with speed up. I had to submit multiple times with very minor changes.

Course content is well-structured and covers basic topics of concurrent programming.
However, code quality and tests for exercises could be better. Usually to pass an assignment you have to send it many times.
par Josefine L•
Very good, but I'd like more practical examples and walk-troughs. If you don't get it the in the only example or the demo, then you're left on your own to Google for more examples and a deeper understanding.

Este curso depende del curso de Paralelismo, por esta razón se debe tomar los cursos en orden. Debería tener mas ejemplos de código para un mejor feedback de la teoría.
par Travis W•
A lot of my time has been wasted due to a very poor explanation of actors. All it takes is "Actors have their own threads and that is how they are concurrent.
par Farruh H•
It could have been better. Course content is very basic and just scratches the surface of concurrent programming. However, fully recommend it for beginners.
par Junqi X•
The course overall is good, but the autograder of assignment can be improved so that the students will not get frustrated to their answer for such long time
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.
par Roman I•
The material is badly organized, the course is worse than the course on parallel programming. Concurrent library could have been covered more wide
par Ng K•
content with just naming and simple theories of terms, is oversimplified. Actually Concurrent Java is harder and can be taught much more deeply！！
par Sohit S G•
The course was niece. It could have made of use of a programming language from scrath rather than depending on the pre-built library.
par Luciano F•
Lo consiglio a tutti, Vorrei soltanto che gli argomenti fossero affrontati più approfonditamente dal punto di vista teorico
par Samuele M•
Good course, with relevant basics of concurrency, even if I expected deeper and detailed contents.

This course is great!... But... it could be better if code explanations are giving in the videos.
