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 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 Vijay G•
I enjoyed the course and the quiz as well. I am able to apply the learning from this course to solve problems at work.
par Samuele M•
Good course, with relevant basics of concurrency, even if I expected deeper and detailed contents.
par John O O•
This course is great!... But... it could be better if code explanations are giving in the videos.
par Cong X•
It's a good introductory course. The programming assignment are indeed too simple though...
par Guillermo D•
Excelent course, just some mixups with the concurrent API used in the assignment for Week3
par Atsuya K•
A good primer to concurrent programming. Week 3 and Week 4 assignments are well-designed.
par Omkar N•
Needs more assignments and would benefit from prescribing optional real world projects.
par Lakshmanan P•
It was a great course introducing the learner about various aspects of Concurrency .
par prabhakar k•
i learn new way to solve java concurrent programming questions.thanks to Coursera.
par Antonio J M G•
Only thing I missed are more optional exercises, otherwise a great course.
par vini g•
Better than Parallel Programming
I would prefer more assignments.
par Simon C•
Very interesting! i hope that the third is the same
par Kartik M•
Great explanation with pseudocode hand hands on.
par Samujjal B•
No of assignments and difficulty could be more
par Marcos N F•
It is great but some homework had bugs
par Monika S•
would like to do more assignments
par Srinivas V•
I feel that we need way more practice in writing concurrent code than what is provided in the mini projects, This course needs to include more challenges ranging from easy to hard for it to be more effective. In the current scenario, faced with a challenge, I would not be confident in tackling it with concurrent programming, but I expected to be confident, since this is a college course offering.
par Přemysl C•
I wasted a lot of time because of the poor quality of test evaluation (autograder). Resubmit of the same code often means different results in autograder.
On the other hand, the course shows basic concepts of concurrent programming and opens themes for further studies.
par Carlos V•
I feel the proposed exercises should be more involved and "in small pieces" in order to engage and dive better into the introduced concepts.
par MIAO K•
Programming assignment is some what easy, I think it my be better to require student to finished the complete code.
par Shahed B S•
Was expecting to learn more advanced topics, including initiating concurrency in systems.
par yangyu s•
passing test cases are mostly luck T_T
par Nanditha K R•
The concepts are explained well. Quizzes and mini project could be better. Somehow the assignments and quizzes were not to standard. Mostly fixing one line changes. Autograder of assignment can be improved.
