Learn how to implement concurrent programming in Go. Explore the roles of channels and goroutines in implementing concurrency. Topics include writing goroutines and implementing channels for communications between goroutines. Course activities will allow you to exercise Go’s capabilities for concurrent programming by developing several example programs.

Syllabus

WEEK 1

MODULE 1: Why Use Concurrency?

This course introduces the concept of concurrency in Go. The first module sets the stage by reviewing the physical factors that can restrict microprocessor performance increases in the future.

 

WEEK 2

MODULE 2: CONCURRENCY BASICS

This module looks at basic concurrency concepts and race conditions in preparation for a discussion of threads coming up in the next module.

 

WEEK 3

MODULE 3: THREADS IN GO

In this module, you’ll work with threaded goroutines and explore the benefits of synchronization. The week’s assignment has you using a threaded approach to create a program that sorts integers via four separate sub-arrays, then merging the arrays into a single array.

 

WEEK 4

MODULE 4: SYNCHRONIZED COMMUNICATION

This last module ties together the various features – including threads, concurrency, and synchronization – covered in this course. The week’s programming assignment requires you to use concurrent algorithms in the implementation of the “dining philosopher’s problem and then address the ensuing synchronization issues.
