CA170 - Introduction to Operating Systems

Quickest way to find this web page:
Google ca170 dcu
Think about it: All other ways (starting at the CA site, Googling my name, etc.) will take much longer to get here.
Just Google module code and DCU and it is the first hit.



Repeat CA

Category 1 - A resit is available for all components of the module

About the notes

My notes contain many hyperlinks to background material. Some students get confused about what is the core course. The core course is anything that is linked to directly on this front page. All other links are just background material.


There will not be any talks in the labs.
In the labs, I will set you tasks to do, either for marks or for practice.
Tutors and I will be available to help.

Library categories


Sometimes I link to Wikipedia. I need to write something in defence of this.

Summary: Do not trust Wikipedia. Do not cite Wikipedia. Linking to it is like linking to a Google search. A starting point, not a destination.
