Very nice article again! I particularly appreciated the fact you mentioned the differences between concurrency and parallelism which are often confused together.
In the Javascript world, this is an important point to have in mind: thanks to the event loop you can achieve great concurrency with a single thread. I wrote about it in the context of testing software if that is an interest to you or your readers.
