Aurema Operating Systems Prize   (Posted by gernot, Fri 25 Jul)
The winner of last year's Aurema OS Prize is Andrew Baumann. He subsequently topped COMP9243. As he won't be able to win the prize twice, the top student of this year's COMP9242 has an excellent chance of winning this year's Aurema OS Prize!
Welcome to Advanced Operating Systems!   (Posted by gernot, Fri 25 Jul)
Note that the weight of the course has been reduced to 6UoC from this year in response to student feedback. The first lecture will be Thu, 31 July at 15:00 in OMB 145A. This is a particularly sucking room for the purpose, but all my attempts over the last 6 months to get that changed have failed, unfortunately.
