Understanding thread pools through cats-effect

1 hour 

To summarize:

We’ve dived deep into thread pools, but there’s plenty more to explore in cats-effect’s thread model. If you’ve followed along, you’re now well equipped to understand Daniel Spiewak’s thoughts on the IORuntime design. Have a look at how it handles scheduling, and see how fibers affect the threading landscape.

Outside of Scala’s thread pools lies a whole ocean of concurrency. If you’ve a thirst for more, why not research threads in your operating system? Convert to Linux and play with its processes!


Many thanks to Fabio Labella and Daniel Spiewak for giving this a reassuring read.
