Course
Description:
This course is an introduction to concepts underlying all computer systems. More specifically, this course provides a programmer's view of how computer systems execute application programs, store information, and communicate with each other. This course also serves as a foundation for courses on operating systems, computer architectures, compilers, programming languages, computer networks, and embedded systems, where a deeper understanding of systems-level issues is required. Topics covered include data representations, assembly languages, processor architectures, the memory hierarchy, operating systems, compilers, linkers and loaders, and high-level application programming interfaces.
