Meanwhile, some high level logistics:
1. The duration of the course is 12 weeks. The start-date of the course is May 29th and the end-date is Aug 17th. Please plan your summer accordingly.
2. The website for this course would be ready by April-30th. It would contain the syllabus, lecture notes, project details and grading rubrics.
3. Textbook for this course : Operating Systems Concept 9th edition – (Silberschartz, Galvin, Gagne). Obtain the book and start working on the ‘practice exercises’ (especially from Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7) for a head-start.
4. Lectures would be video recorded and uploaded onto YouTube. To evaluate my teaching/talking style, please check some of my videos here.
I look forward for an exciting summer of learning and fun. Given the freedom to exercise my abilities as the sole instructor of CSE 4/521 for the first time, I’ll work my best to instill into each and everyone of you something I value immensely – ‘the love of operating systems‘.
