Distributed Computing Applications & Infrastructure

September 1st, 2009 | Tags: , | Links: course

In the fall of 2009 I was a graduate student instructor for the Distributed Computing Applications and Infrastructure course offered by the School of Information at UC Berkeley.  The course was taught by professor John Chuang.  It is described as follows:

Technological foundations for computing and communications: computer architecture, operating systems, networking, middleware, security. Programming paradigms: object oriented-design, design and analysis of algorithms, data structures, formal languages. Distributed-system architectures and models, inter-process communications, concurrency, system performance.

As a GSI I gained a much greater insight into the subject matter of the course, and benefitted from the experience of holding lab and office hours with students.
