CSC380 Distributed Systems

This course explores computational processing residing on multiple platforms. Students start with basics such as simple socket communications, protocol rationale, and remote procedure invocation, and then advance to the use of these mechanisms to address distributed concerns such as caching and transactions. Finally, this course looks into topological concerns that come with scale such as cloud computing and fully decentralized distributed systems.
