Illinios offers course on cloud computing

 

About the course:

Cloud computing systems, whether open-source or used inside companies are built using a common set of core techniques, algorithms, and design philosophies, all centered around distributed systems.

Some of these concepts include:

  • Clouds, MapReduce, key-value stores
  • Classical precursors
  • Widely-used algorithms
  • Classical algorithms
  • Scalability
  • Trending areas

The course helps student to understand how these techniques work in cloud computing systems and get them know the using the concepts with provided homework exercises. In the optional programming track, implement some of these concepts in template assignments provided in C++ programming language.

Apart from these students will watch interviews with leading managers and researchers, from both industry and academia.

Syllabus:

Course divided into 5 weekly modules covers the following topics:

  • Week 1: Leader election, mutual exclusion
  • Week 2: Concurrency control, replication control
  • Week 3: Stream processing, graph processing, structure of networks, scheduling
  • Week 4: Distributed file systems, distributed shared memory, sensor networks
  • Week 5: Security, datacenter outage studies, wrap-up

Pre requisites:

  • This course is generally oriented towards either graduate students (or senior undergraduates) or developers in industry who are working with cloud computing systems
  • Some familiarity with cloud computing systems helps, but is not a prerequisite. In the optional programming track, familiarity with C++ programming language is required
  • This course does not teach you how to use cloud computing systems or about networking or Big Data. If we were to draw an analogy, if this course is about cars, then it teaches you the physics relating to the internals of the car (e.g., friction, transmission, gears, etc.) and basics about the internals of the car (e.g., about the carburetor, engine, etc.). The course do not teach you how to drive a car or about automobile accident statistics or about how roads are built
  • Do not take this course if you are not from computers or computer science background

Course details:

  • Course starts on: March 16
  • Course length: 5 weeks
