I want to say that my program is capable of splitting some work across multiple CPU cores on a single system. What is the simple term for this? It's not multi-threaded, because that doesn't ...
I've recently begun adopting the best practice of designing my classes to be immutable per Effective Java [Bloch2008]. I have a series of interrelated questions about degrees of mutability and their ...
I am a fairly good programmer, my boss is also a fairly good programmer. Though he seems to underestimate some tasks such as multi-threading and how difficult it can be (I find it very difficult for ...
Implicit parallelism^ can take a big burden away from many programmers, placing it on the computer. So... why is it is not more widespread at present? ^ Implicit parallelism is to make a computer be ...
Is the synchronised keyword still required (ignore backwards compatibility, I'm thinking in terms of writing new code, today) or should we all be using the features available in the Concurrent and ...
I'm thinking about how one would go about designing a descriptive concurrency model for an OOP language that helps simplify concurrency scenarios for programmers (no easy task, concurrency is hard). ...
I'm trying to wrap my head around different concurrency solutions to several threads iterating over the same collection but I'm having difficulty coming up with good realistic (but preferably easy to ...
I'm looking to dive into multithreading or multiprocessing in Python. Question: should I be learning one before the other (for any reason)? If so, which one and why? I've read the pro's and con's in ...
I am writing an article about both programming language locking primitives (which are really wrappers for OS primitives) and database locking primitives. Are there any short wide-spread titles for ...
This question is a narrowing-down of these related questions: How much effort should we spend to programming for multiple cores? Concurrency: How do you approach the design and debug the ...
I've been developing concurrent systems for several years now, and I have a pretty good grasp on the subject despite my lack of formal training (i.e. no degree). There's a few new languages that have ...
The Actor Model that is used by Erlang seem to be a very different way to do concurrent programming. What is your thoughts on the Actor Model? Will it be a popular solution for concurrency?
