In this post we introduce the essentials of programming for systems with several CPU cores. We start with an explanation of software threads and synchronization, two fundamental building blocks of multithreaded programming. We explain how these are implemented in hardware, and finally, we present several multithreading APIs you can use for parallel programming.
