In this modern world, we cannot afford to ignore those tricks that will make us faster than our competitors. In this short course, Heinz takes us through some tricks with threading that allow us to use both concurrency and parallelism to write systems that better utilize our available hardware. It is a peep into the world of threading, but not nearly as detailed as our full-blown "Extreme Java - Concurrency Performance Course".
