Programming of Distributed Systems, 7,5 Credits

The real world is distributed. That means that software often has to mirror this distributed-ness. In this course, we deal with the theory behind distributed software systems and connect it to practical application and programming of such systems. Important questions concern how an interaction protocol could look like or how different processes should be best coordinated and synchronized when dealing with shared memory structures. Questions about security and robustness play an important role in the course as well.
