Jan Olbrich wrote article about his and his team experience with understanding topics like concurrency and parallelism. Together you will learn how to program concurrently.
Article then reads about:
- Synchronous vs Asynchronous
- Concurrency vs Parallelism
- Mechanisms for concurrency
- Options to control concurrency
Article is extensive, e.g. when describing concurrency it dives into: process, thread, dispatch queues, operation queues, run loops, lightweight routine. The same goes for options to control concurrency, e.g. article describes: priority inversion, priority inheritance, lock, spinlock, mutex, semaphore…
There are so many options to do concurrent programming and this posts just scratches the surface. Excellent read![Read More]
