Seven Concurrency Models in Seven Weeks: When Threads by Paul Butcher

By Paul Butcher

Your software program must leverage a number of cores, deal with millions of clients and terabytes of information, and proceed operating within the face of either and software program failure. Concurrency and parallelism are the keys, and 7 Concurrency types in Seven Weeks equips you for this new global. See how rising applied sciences akin to actors and useful programming deal with matters with conventional threads and locks improvement. how one can take advantage of the parallelism on your computer's GPU and leverage clusters of machines with MapReduce and movement Processing. And do all of it with the boldness that comes from utilizing instruments that assist you write crystal transparent, fine quality code.

This publication will assist you to make the most assorted parallel architectures to enhance your code's functionality, scalability, and resilience. You'll find out about seven concurrency types: threads and locks, practical programming, setting apart id and kingdom, actors, sequential tactics, facts parallelism, and the lambda architecture.

Learn in regards to the perils of conventional threads and locks programming and the way to beat them via cautious layout and through operating with the traditional library. See how actors let software program operating on geographically dispensed desktops to collaborate, deal with failure, and create platforms that stay awake 24/7/365. comprehend why shared mutable country is the enemy of sturdy concurrent code, and notice how practical programming including applied sciences reminiscent of software program Transactional reminiscence (STM) and automated parallelism assist you tame it.

You'll find out about the untapped capability inside each GPU and the way GPGPU software program can unharness it. You'll see the way to use MapReduce to harness titanic clusters to unravel formerly intractable difficulties, and the way, in live performance with move Processing, titanic information might be tamed.

With an knowing of the strengths and weaknesses of every of the various types and architectures, you'll be empowered to take on any challenge with confidence.

What You Need:

The instance code should be compiled and performed on *nix, OS X, or home windows. directions on tips to obtain the aiding construct platforms are given in every one bankruptcy.
