Intro to Operating Systems 3: Concurrency

Codio via Coursera


Learn the inner workings of operating systems without installing anything!

This course is designed for learners who are looking to maximize performance by understanding how operating systems work at a fundamental level. The modules in this course cover concurrency, threads, locks, locking data structures and multi-CPU scheduling.

To allow for a truly hands-on, self-paced learning experience, this course is video-free. Assignments contain short explanations with images and runnable code examples with suggested edits to explore code examples further, building a deeper understanding by doing. You’ll benefit from instant feedback from a variety of assessment items along the way, gently progressing from quick understanding checks (multiple choice, fill in the blank, and un-scrambling code blocks) to slowly building features, resulting in large coding projects at the end of the course.
