Real-time messaging apps are a common standalone product, or a built-in feature of larger systems. For this question, you might be asked to design a specific app, like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.
In the process, the students gain hands-on knowledge of hardware architecture, operating systems, programming languages, compilers, data structures, algorithms, and software engineering. Using this constructive approach, the book exposes a significant body of computer science knowledge and demonstrates how theoretical and applied techniques taught in other courses fit into the overall picture.
This book takes the reader from the basic design principles of the modern digital computer to a top-level examination of its architecture. The material is presented using practical terms and examples for a better computer systems design.
This book takes a principles-based approach to the computer system design. Through carefully analyzed case studies from each of these disciplines, it demonstrates how to apply these concepts to tackle practical system design problems.
The book digs into linkers, compilers, operating systems, and computer architecture to understand how the different parts of the computer interact with programs. It begins with a review of C/C++ and explanations of how libraries, linkers, and Makefiles work.
This certificate offers an interdisciplinary program of courses in Technical Communications, Art/New Media, and Computer Information Systems to prepare students for a variety of technical writing and professional communication careers. The certificate includes the theory, writing skills, design background, and computer applications knowledge needed for jobs in technical communication.
This course introduces the use of database management programs on the microcomputer. It includes designing a database; storing, searching, and updating files; and designing and producing printed reports.
This course provides students with opportunities to develop marketable skills in preparation for employment or advancement within the field of computer information science. It is designed for students interested in work experience and/or internships in transfer-level degree occupational programs. Course content includes understanding the application of education to the workforce, completion of Title 5 required forms which document the student's progress and hours spent at the work site, and developing workplace skills and competencies. During the semester, the student is required to complete 37.5 hours of related paid work experience, or 30 hours of related unpaid work experience for 0.5 unit. An additional 37.5 or 30 hours of related work experience is required for each additional 0.5 units. All students are required to attend the first class meeting, a mid-semester meeting, and a final meeting. Additionally, students who have not already successfully completed a Work Experience course will be required to attend weekly orientations while returning participants may meet individually with the instructor as needed. Students may take up to 16 units total across all Work Experience course offerings. This course may be taken up to four times when there are new or expanded learning objectives. Only one Work Experience course may be taken per semester.
This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. It surveys data communication protocols, standards, hardware and software components and basic networking concepts. Topics include the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) and TCP/IP models, IP addressing and subnetting, routing concepts, LAN media, Ethernet, and network configuration, troubleshooting and analysis. This is the first course in preparation for Cisco CCNA certification examination. ARC is a certified Cisco Networking Academy and all courses are taught by Cisco Certified Academy Instructors (CCAI).
This course introduces methods for solving typical computer problems through algorithm design. Topics include assessing and analyzing computer problems in a top-down, divide-and-conquer approach that leads to a programming solution. It also covers programming plans and detailed design documents from which source code versions of programs are created.
This honors course combines the content of both CISP 300 and CISP 360 and presents it in an accelerated fashion emphasizing projects and collaborative work. It introduces methods for solving typical computer problems by assessing and analyzing computing problems, performing algorithm design using a top-down, divide and conquer approach, and continues with implementation, documentation, testing, and debugging. Topics include structured programming, data representation, data types, variables, constants, operators, and expression evaluation. It also includes control structures, functions, interactive and file input/output, standard libraries, arrays, pointers, structures, classes, and objects. Pseudocode and an object-oriented programming language are used to create program solutions. This course is not open to students who have completed CISP 300 or CISP 360.
This course is an introduction to publishing on the World Wide Web. Topics include creating web pages with Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), organizing a series of pages into a website, and uploading web pages to a server. This course makes extensive use of the computer tools necessary to insert HTML tags, create images, and view web documents. It takes beginning web designers through the process of designing, building, and publishing a working website.

Today, Linux systems are used throughout computing, from embedded systems to virtually all supercomputers, and have secured a place in server installations such as the popular LAMP application stack. Use of Linux distributions in home and enterprise desktops has been growing. Linux distributions have also become popular in the netbook market, with many devices shipping with customized Linux distributions installed, and Google releasing their own ChromeOS designed for netbooks.
Another business model is to give away the software to sell hardware. This used to be the norm in the computer industry, with operating systems such as CP/M, Apple DOS and versions of Mac OS prior to 7.6 freely copyable (but not modifiable). As computer hardware standardized throughout the 1980s, it became more difficult for hardware manufacturers to profit from this tactic, as the OS would run on any manufacturer's computer that shared the same architecture.
The Linux kernel is a widely ported operating system kernel, available for devices ranging from mobile phones to supercomputers; it runs on a highly diverse range of computer architectures, including the hand-held ARM-based iPAQ and the IBM mainframes System z9 or System z10. Specialized distributions and kernel forks exist for less mainstream architectures; for example, the ELKS kernel fork can run on Intel 8086 or Intel 80286 16-bit microprocessors, while the µClinux kernel fork may run on systems without a memory management unit. The kernel also runs on architectures that were only ever intended to use a manufacturer-created operating system, such as Macintosh computers (with both PowerPC and Intel processors), PDAs, video game consoles, portable music players, and mobile phones.
During the design of distributed systems, we have to identify a communication strategy to exchange information between different services while keeping the evolutionary nature of the architecture in mind. In this post, we share architectural resources to introduce event-driven architectures, how to build them on AWS, and how to approach the design phase.
