5 day Real-time and Parallel Computing workshop: 21st August- 24 August 2017
Introduction to Operating Systems principles, Real-time concepts and programming in multi-process environment for non-computer scientists
By the end of this workshop the participants will learn about:
- Concurrency: processes vs. threads
- Inter process communication: data pools, pipe-lines and message queues
- Synchronization principles: mutexes and semaphores, critical sections and monitors
- Deadlock and Starvation: detections and solutions
- Operating System Scheduling: interrupts, priorities and Rate Monotonic Scheduling
The topics will be presented via examples and discussions. The afternoon sessions will have hands on tutorials with exercises to practice the concepts discussed.
Prerequisites: knowledge C++ is helpful for the tutorials.
Venue: Software Systems Center, Block B, College of Computing & IT, Makerere University
The workshop will be a one day event co-hosted by the College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS) at Makerere University as
well as the ACEIE from the University of Pretoria. The event will take place at the Metropole Kampala Hotel in Kololo, on Friday, 23 June
NB: Meals and refreshments will be provided to the participants. However, participants will be responsible for their own accommodation
