Great Course! I think it is probably one of the best (if not the best) explanation of threading & queue topic I have seen on the internet! Thanks!

Agree with others that this is the best explanation of threading, etc on the internet. I’m not sure if other related lessons exist regarding threading but if there are, it would be nice to have a recommneded next steps suggestion.
