Don't feel so bad. Work at that level is quite different, and we use a trick--we generally write in assembly language and have access to cycle-accurate simulations. Very, VERY different from writing concurrency code in something higher level where you don't have simulators and no idea at all about what code is actually executing. We also get to experiment--a lot--to see what happens.
