*** Latest Update: Course updated and all videos re-recorded in June-2020 ***

Learn all the concepts of Java’s Executors API from scratch in combination with parallel concepts of the Threads API. Develop skills and deepen your knowledge of advanced multi-threading concepts by learning various tips & techniques and becoming aware of pitfalls when using Executors API. And … refresh your advanced Threads-API concepts as well.

  • Do you know how to return values using the normal Threads API and its Runnables?

  • Do you know the various ways of terminating threads midway for both the APIs?

  • Do you know how to ‘join threads’ using Executors?

  • Do you know that you cannot catch stray exceptions leaked out from a thread by using try-catch block – neither in the Threads API nor in the Executors one? And that this can lead to third-party code killing your scalable, high-performance and high-availability enterprise application?

  • Do you know how to check if a task has finished execution using both the APIs?

  • Do you know what are daemon threads and how to create them using Executors?

  • Do you know how to name Executor threads?

  • Do you know the various ways to schedule tasks for running in future using both the APIs? Do you know the various ‘types’ of scheduling?

If the answer to any of these questions is ‘no’, then this course is for you (provided that you know Java and the basics of multi-threading already)! Learning from HD quality videos and nearly 6 hours of content will help you convert all these “nos” to “yeses” … and will also give you an edge over your peers! Not only will this course help you learn how to get things done the multi-threaded way but also how to avoid the mistakes and pitfalls and thereby, increase your efficiency and productivity. All those long bug-fixing hours that you save can be spent finishing your other pending work or even for pleasure!

Avoid the pitfalls while writing multi-threaded code by learning pro-tips

In my 18 years of experience building large enterprise applications, I have made all the mistakes in multi-threading that can be made. And believe me – multi-threading bugs are costly and multi-weekend-destroying to resolve.

I have used my vast experience to craft this course in such a manner so as to highlight the pitfalls that await a programmer and also provide tips to avoid those pitfalls. By going through this course, you will be years ahead of your peers who are yet to make all the mistakes that I have made.

Content and Overview

It is difficult to directly move from an older to a newer way of doing things if you are not comfortable with the older way also – you won’t be able to map things from the old way to the new way. So, this course has been structured in such a way that the Threads-API way of doing things are explained first and then the corresponding way to do them using the Executors-API is explained. This will help you understand not only the advanced concepts of Executors but also those of the Threads-API.

So, this course is suitable for programmers who want to learn about the Executors API from scratch. It is also beneficial for those who want to refresh their concepts or learn the techniques of doing various operations using the Threads-API. Detailed examples along with the source-code are provided on every concept for both the APIs.

The course starts with the basics first – ‘How to create and run threads’, ‘How to name the threads’ and ‘How to return values from threads’ – using both the APIs. And then, it gradually moves on to increasingly advanced concepts like ‘Terminating Threads’, ‘Catching Exceptions’, ‘Waiting for threads to finish without wasting CPU cycles’, etc.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is meant for all Java professionals who are familiar with Java’s Threads-API but who are not comfortable with the Executors-Framework yet. For example – if you know how to terminate normal threads but not how to terminate Executor tasks or threads, then this course is for you.
  • Even if you do not know how to terminate normal threads, return values from normal threads and the like – then also this course is for you. Professionals who are still using the old Threads-API and want to have more practical knowledge about some advanced concepts of this API can also benefit from this course as Threads-API is also covered in detail.
  • If you love to have deep knowledge of underlying concepts of a technology or topic rather than just shallow familiarity, then this course is for you.
  • This course is probably not for you if you are looking to learn about Java multi-threading from scratch!
  • This course is definitely not for you if you do not know how to code in Java!

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

  3. Jiaqing Fan

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

  9. Chendaniel

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
