Hi guys : I'm trying to learn how to increase my application performance, in general. I'm also getting ready for some interviews which involve concurrency. I have alot of theoretical background in computer science, and understand threads, the JVM, etc... But wanted a crash course in 'real world' parrellel java - with tutorials based on real world programs, that force me to actually open my IDE up and code some solid, concurrent, correct programs.

Does anybody have a good syllabus idea for me ? I havent found any solid, didactic, well ordered learning tools online that are both comprehensive as well as practical, i.e. focused on real world applications.

[ btw - yes I know how to use google ]

The FAQ for this forum points you to two excellent books on the subject.

Something more didactic, along the lines of "The Algorithm Design Manual" by Skiena, for example, with thought provoking exercises and coding directives.....

Any ideas?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
