About the course
This course is broadening the skills of those who already have experience in sequential programming to include concurrent and parallel programming allowing them to better utilise modern computer systems, e.g., multi-core systems. In addition to basic concepts of parallel programming, problems that may arise in connection with concurrency, and techniques to solve these are studied. The course provides both theoretical knowledge and practical parallel programming skills.
