Download Parallel and Concurrent Programming with C++ Part 1 Course By Lynda
Parallel programming unlocks a program’s ability to execute multiple instructions simultaneously. It increases the overall processing throughput and is key to writing faster and more efficient applications. This training course introduces the basics of concurrent and parallel programming in C++, providing the foundational knowledge you need to write more efficient, performant code. Instructors Barron and Olivia Stone explain concepts like threading and mutual exclusion in a fun and informative way, relating them to everyday activities you perform in the kitchen. To cement the ideas, they demo them in action using C++. Each lesson is short and practical, driving home the theory with hands-on techniques.Topics include:
- Parallel computing architectures
- Shared vs. distributed memory
- Thread vs. process
- Execution scheduling
- The thread lifecycle in C++
- Mutual exclusion
- Locking in recursive and shared mutexes
- Acquiring a lock on a mutex with a try lock
- Resolving deadlock and livelock conditions
- There's an old saying that two heads are better than one. - Well, when it comes to parallel programming, I say two threads are better than one. I'm Barron Stone. - And I'm Olivia Stone. In this course, we'll introduce you to the fundamental concepts for concurrent and parallel programming. - These are the basic mechanisms you need to develop programs that can do multiple things at once. To take advantage of multi-core processors and parallel hardware. - [Olivia] We'll focus on the general concepts and relate them back to everyday activities in the kitchen to make those ideas easier to understand and have some fun. - Then, to help cement those abstract ideas, we'll demonstrate them in action using the C++ programming language. If you're new to concurrent and parallel programming, this is a great place to start. Let's get to it. - Let's get to it.
