6.033: Computer Systems Engineering - Lecture 8

Recorded on 3/5/12

MIT's course 6.033, Computer Systems Engineering, focuses on topics on the engineering of computer software and hardware systems: techniques for controlling complexity; strong modularity using client-server design, virtual memory, and threads; networks; atomicity and coordination of parallel activities; recovery and reliability; privacy, security, and encryption; and impact of computer systems on society. Case studies of working systems and readings from the current literature provide comparisons and contrasts.
