CS 326 Operating Systems

Fall 2018

Operating systems are found in nearly every modern computing device, from phones and tablets to workstations and the cloud. An operating system (OS) manages hardware resources (CPU, memory, disks, etc.) and provides a layer of abstraction to make working with these resources easier.

In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of operating system design and implementation. This includes system calls, inter-process communication, virtual memory, networking, and file systems.
