1 Overview

This is our first offering of a course we hope will, along with several other courses, replace and update several of our current courses. More information about the pilot of these courses as a whole may be found at http://pilot.cs.virginia.edu/.

For the sake of conversing with those familiar with our other course offerings, this course covers much of CS 3330 “Computer Architecture” but at a higher level of detail; the concurrency and security topics from CS 4414 “Operating Systems”; in addition to having several new topics we felt were under-represented in our previous set of course offerings.
