Computer Networking & Distributed Applications (with project)

Computer Science and ICT, Data, AI

About this course

Practically every time we interact with a computer program — on our computer, tablet, smartphones, SmartTVs or our refrigerators … or, for some reason on our also connected toaster oven — we’re in reality interacting with a distributed application.

The device we hold in our hands for sending an email (or, into which we slide our sliced toast … ) will, at the very least, communicate with a server, somewhere out there in “the cloud” — and, most often, comunicate with a whole host of servers, and computers … and does so through what we call “The Internet”.

A corollary to this is that every relevant modern application is a distributed aplication, which uses the Internet and the cloud — and, in a nutshell, the purpose of this MODAL is to teach you how to competently develop those.
