Course informationThis course aims to give students an understanding of what's "under the hood" in a modern computer system. Take this class to boost your confidence on a computer and to understand how everything works like never before! We'll cover basic topics including how machines represent and execute programs, how user program interact with the OS, as well as advanced topics including how to write networked and concurrent programs. These topics are supported by a series of challenging lab assignments in C.
Prerequisites: You need to be comfortable with programming (e.g. in Java) and the UNIX environment.
