Network and Distributed Computing
This course introduces students to lower-level aspects of computer networking such as: wiring and protocols; LAN technologies; WAN protocols and techniques (eg routing, IP, TCP and UDP) underpinning internets. An examination of the concepts, theory and practice of software development in distributed environments follows. The basic foundations for distributed computing are presented. These topics are then expanded to cover the advanced distributed system programmer support provided by middleware. Examples involving commercial distributed computing environments are included to illustrate the decisions and techniques made by designers of distributed software systems.
