Multiprocessing basic example - Its running functions in sequential order rather than parallel (in jupyter notebook)

In the code below, I had to:

  • use multiprocessing to create three separate processes.
  • Make each one wait a random number of seconds between one and five, print the current time, and then exit.

Question: Its running the functions in sequential rather than parallel. how do I make it run in parallel?

What’s your question?

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Sorry for not writing my post mindfully. Could you have a look and let me know what you guys think?
or could you share where I can post this to get my query answered.
