"Learn it!" is a project dedicated to collecting of high quality online learning resource links (MOOC, youtube video lecture courses) in various subjects (primarily natural sciences and software engineering). Our primary interest is videos of complete lecture courses.

Level - undergraduate and graduate. Target audience - higher education students and adult learners.

opt: We are a project about your topic of study or knowledge that anyone, including you, can contribute to. We do not create new learning materials on these pages, but rather collect references to quality online and offline existing resources on specific topics. Today, when online video lectures, MOOC courses, free e-books and books are abundant, we help each other to find them and to select most valuable of them.

Selected stuff (Books)[edit | edit source]

There are too many platforms and languages with multithreading support. Let's first of all bring here the books which matter, rather than yet another boring platform-specific manual.

  • "The Little Book of Semaphores", Allen B. Downey [get free] -- good for acquiring an intuition on solving of basic (and not so basic) synchronization problems using old good semaphores.
  • "The Art of Multiprocessor Programming", Maurice Herlihy, Nir Shavit  [amazon] -- this book is mostly dedicated to the lock-free synchronization and other advanced topics rather than basic synchronization methods.
  • Any good book on condvars?

Frameworks?[edit | edit source]

OpenMP, MPI, TBB, TPL, Cilk, Cilk plus, OpenCL, PPL, ParaSail, GCD, fork/join, AMP, CnC, PBB, ArBB, PPL
