TDDB68 Concurrent programming and Operating Systems (6 ECTS)

VT1 2020

Welcome to the course Concurrent programming and operating systems! This course provides an introduction to concurrency, both theoretically and how to program concurrent systems, as well as to principles of operating systems. The course is organized with lectures that present the theory, and a demanding but rewarding lab series where students extend and modify the Pintos operating system. At the end of the course there is a written exam.

The course is given with two different course codes, TDDB68 is a 6hp version of the course given as a mandatory course to students in the D and U programmes and as an elective course for several other programmes (and for international exchange students). TDDE47 is a 8hp version of the course given to students in the IT programme. The main difference between the two versions is that TDDE47 does not have C++ and pointer programming as a prerequisite and that the TDDE47 also makes use of problem-based learning (with a focus on the low-level programming part). Most of the information in these web pages is replicated across the two course web sites, and most of the course infrastructure is shared.
