Programming in UNIX Environment, 7,5 Credits

The aim of the course is to enable students to acquire specialised understanding of UNIX-based systems and for programming close to the operating system. This involves, among other things, being able to program at the most abstract level of the operating system, close to the user, and down through the levels of abstraction to the lowest level, system calls. The course trains students in designing software that interacts with the computer through the operating system UNIX (and operating systems similar to or based on UNIX such as Linux and MacOS). It provides a foundation for continued studies in other fields (such as computer security) demanding a practical understanding of the technology involved. The objective of the course is achieved by the student through gaining practical experience of developing programs in a UNIX environment in a series of laboratory exercises.
