Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

You are aware of how easily fatal, hard to identify and innocent looking bugs creep in to the code of concurrently running programs. You can apply general design principles, models and methods to construct concurrent systems that, in addition to all other requirements, behave correctly with the respect to their functional specifications. You have got an experience of applying the theories using the concurrency features of Java and Scala in programming exercises. You know weak memory models, tools for finding concurrency bugs, and modern concurrent programming frameworks such as Akka Actors and Apache Spark.
