CSCI134 HM - Operating Systems: Design and Implementation

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Kuenning, O’Neill, Stone, Staff

Description: Design and implementation of operating systems, including processes, memory management, synchronization, scheduling, protection, file systems, and I/O. These concepts are used to illustrate wider concepts in the design of other large software systems, including simplicity; efficiency; event-driven programming; abstraction design; client-server architec­ture; mechanism vs. policy; orthogonality; naming and binding; static vs. dynamic, space vs. time, and other trade-offs; optimization; caching; and managing large code bases. Group projects provide experience in working with and extending a real operating system.
