Course ObjectiveGaining a deep understanding of kernel programming and the design of
major OS subsystems.
Course ContentThe course will feature a number of hands-on assignments accompanied by
lectures on advanced operating system kernel design and programming
concepts. In each assignment, students will be expected to start with a
minimal kernel implementation and exercise their kernel hacking skills
on one of the major operating subsystems (i.e., memory management,
drivers, etc.). This will involve programming in both C and assembly as
well as directly interfacing with the hardware. The course will also
link lectures and assignments to modern operating system features and
offer insights into state-of-the-art OS research efforts.
