Summary


In this chapter, we learned some parallel programming concepts, and learned about some models, their advantages, and disadvantages. Some of the problems and potential issues when thinking of parallelism have been presented in a brief explanations. We also had a short introduction to some Python modules, built-in and external, which makes a developer's life easier when building up parallel systems.

In the next chapter, we will be studying some techniques to design parallel algorithms.
