Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

CS 4414 exposes students to programming applications at the systems level and to the operating-systems abstractions that these applications depend on. Students learn to make design choices guided by performance, hardware, security and other systems properties. Operating systems abstractions covered include process and memory management, file systems and storage, networking, threads and multiprocess concurrency along with synchronization abstractions including locks and condition variables, and security abstractions for isolation and authorization. Students gain experience with C/C++ programming, major command-line tools and techniques for debugging, instrumenting and tuning applications.
