System Level Programming

Course Number 705004 | Wintersemester 2020/21

Content

The goal of this class is to introduce concepts, relevant for system-level programming. This includes deepening and strengthening your understanding of basic stuff—like pointers—or more basic stuff—like compiler errors—and getting in touch with things like semaphores, fork, malloc or posix.

Objective

This course builds on the basic programming courses in year 1. After having attended this module, students have a good knowledge of programming in C and C++ and are ably to use system-level APIs like the POSIX API. They acquire a systematic knowledge of synchronization primitives and are able to effectively use system calls for multithreading, synchronization, and inter-process communication.
