New Dates for Effective Concurrency Seminar in Europe: May 27-29, Stockholm, Sweden

Now that I’m over the icky flu that forced me to postpone the seminar two weeks ago, I’m happy to say that we have new dates: Effective Concurrency (Europe) will be held on May 27-29, 2009, in Stockholm, Sweden. I’ll cover the following topics:

  • Fundamentals: Define basic concurrency goals and requirements • Understand applications’ scalability needs • Key concurrency patterns
  • Isolation — Keep work separate: Running tasks in isolation and communicate via async messages • Integrating multiple messaging systems, including GUIs and sockets • Building responsive applications using background workers • Threads vs. thread pools
  • Scalability — Re-enable the Free Lunch: When and how to use more cores • Exploiting parallelism in algorithms • Exploiting parallelism in data structures • Breaking the scalability barrier
  • Consistency — Don’t Corrupt Shared State: The many pitfalls of locks–deadlock, convoys, etc. • Locking best practices • Reducing the need for locking shared data • Safe lock-free coding patterns • Avoiding the pitfalls of general lock-free coding • Races and race-related effects
  • High Performance Concurrency: Machine architecture and concurrency • Costs of fundamental operations, including locks, context switches, and system calls • Memory and cache effects • Data structures that support and undermine concurrency • Enabling linear and superlinear scaling
  • Migrating Existing Code Bases to Use Concurrency
  • Near-Future Tools and Features

I hope to see some of you there!
