About

With processors becoming more advanced, companies are increasingly looking for developers who can write efficient and accurate code. Parallelism and concurrency are concepts that can support these requirements and are therefore significant importance for developers to understand and utilize. This course will help JavaScript developers prepare for job interviews and help them develop these skills and develop proficiencies at writing parallel commands.

You will learn the concepts of parallel programming in JavaScript and gain an understanding of processor cores and overall browser structures. You’ll understand the asynchronous nature of JavaScript and utilize the GPU to run parallel programs. We’ll cover important interview questions along with several techniques to achieve parallelism by implementing them in some real-life scenarios.

By the end of this course, you’ll gain the knowledge of how parallelism concepts can enhance your coding expertise and professional career development. Moreover, you’ll be capable of applying your learning to other programming languages.
