The Concurrency Specialist Course
"Java Concurrency in Practice" in a four-day intensive course.
Java was built to be able to do many things at once. In
computer lingo, we call this "concurrency". This is the main
reason why Java is so useful.
Your coders need to master concurrency. If they do not, your
system might break on your busiest day. Concurrency bugs tend
to appear when we do a lot of things at the same time, such
as dealing with many clients.
In this course, we combine the collective wisdom of three
Java experts: Dr Heinz Kabutz, Victor Grazi and Brian Goetz.
Each of these has years of experience in writing concurrent
During this 4-day course, you will learn how to write safe
multi-threaded Java code that performs well on your hardware.
You will learn techniques to ensure visibility of your fields,
to build thread safety without explicit locking. You will
learn the new fork/join constructs and explore ways to
parallelize your algorithms.
"I am extremely pleased that Dr. Heinz Kabutz has created a
training course based on Java Concurrency in Practice.
Everyone in the Java community appreciates Dr. Heinz' work;
his deep understanding of Java -- and his passion for it --
show through in everything he does. This course is sure to
be a winner."
Brian Goetz, Author of Java Concurrency in Practice
If you answer "yes!" to any of the following questions, then this
course is for you:
Has your system ever caused some strange behaviors that you
could not explain? This often happens at the worst time,
such as when your system is very busy. Imagine losing your
biggest shopping day!
Have you ever wondered how some of the more advanced Java
constructs work, such as the ConcurrentHashMap or
Would you like to find out how ReadWriteLocks can cause
Have you ever programmed a web application, a servlet, a
JSP page, a Swing application?
Are you an above average Java programmer, interested to
The Java Concurrency Course is the only such training
officially endorsed by Brian Goetz, and is based on his
Java Concurrency in
Practice. The course was written by Dr Heinz Kabutz,
author of The Java Specialists'
Newsletter, with contributions by Victor Grazi, author of
the Java Concurrent Animated Tutorial.

"The course is founded on the book 'Java Concurrency In Practice',
which is obligatory reading for Java software specialists. But teams
that need to arrive together at a common understanding of the advanced
topic of Java concurrency will benefit both from the course's clear
focus on the essential topics and from the practical exercises."
Marko Zarkovic, Canada
This course is ideally suited to the professional Java
programmer with at least 2 years experience, who would like
to learn how to truly understand Java concurrency.
Preferably a formal qualification in computer science or related field.
At least two years of professional Java programming.

Once you have signed up and paid for one of our open courses
held at the Java Specialists Headquarters in Chorafakia in
Chania on the Island of Crete, we guarantee that it will take
place on those dates. You can thus book your travel with
peace of mind that there will not be changes to the schedule.
This only applies once you have booked and paid for your
course. We do reserve the right to change dates depending on
customer demand. However, even if you are the only person
signed up for the course, it will still take place on the
agreed upon dates. We believe that customer satisfaction is
more important than short-term profit.
Furthermore, we guarantee that you will be satisfied with the
training. Should you not be happy within the first half day
of the course, we will refund you the price of the course
fees. No refunds will be given after lunch on the first day,
as you would have already gained too much valuable
information by that time.
