Don't be afraid about concurrency, learn from Grokking Concurrency!

Eddu Melendez
Look inside
This easy-to-read, hands-on guide demystifies concurrency concepts like threading, asynchronous programming, and parallel processing in any language.

In Grokking Concurrency you will:

  • Get up to speed with the core concepts of concurrency, asynchrony, and parallel programming
  • Learn the strengths and weaknesses of different hardware architectures
  • Improve the sequential performance characteristics of your software
  • Solve common problems for concurrent programming
  • Compose patterns into a series of practices for writing scalable systems
  • Write and implement concurrency systems that scale to any size

Grokking Concurrency demystifies writing high-performance concurrent code through clear explanations of core concepts, interesting illustrations, insightful examples, and detailed techniques you can apply to your own projects. You’ll learn effective concurrency practices that will help you leverage multiple cores, excel with high loads, handle terabytes of data, and continue working after hardware and software failures. The core concepts in this guide will remain eternally relevant, whether you’re building web apps, IoT systems, or handling big data.

about the technology

Microservices, big data, real-time systems, and other performance-intensive applications can all slow your systems to a crawl. You know the solution is “concurrency.” Now what? How do you choose among concurrency approaches? How can you be sure you’ll actually reduce latency and complete your jobs faster? This entertaining, fully-illustrated guide answers all of your concurrency questions so you can start taking full advantage of modern multicore processors.

This book is a model of clarity. It clearly puts back not-so-well-known concepts in context.

Luc Rogge

The Manning Grokking series has a well deserved good reputation and this book will not let the series down.
