The aim is to understand the principles and design of applications for distributed environments, obtain an overview of modern distributed environments, and ability of usage application interfaces for various programming environments.
The students will become familiar with concepts and principles of distributed environments, with the design and implementation of applications for distributed environments and security aspects in distributed environments.
- A student learns terminology in the domain of DS
- A student learns to create small projects
- A student learns to present and defend the results of the small project
Why is the course taught
The course acquaints students with current technologies of distributed systems, which will enable them to participate in the development of modern applications for large data processing.
