Learning Objectives

The course aims at providing the student with the foundamental concepts and tools to design, implement and test distriduted applications. We will start from simple concepts like communication mechanisms (queues and channels). After a small introduction on formal models for distributed computing, Erlang and goLang will be introduced.

Bridging Courses

We highly recomand to take Distributed Systems first

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: the student will acquire the main knowledge on programming distributed applications

Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: the student will be able to apply the knowledge acquired with the aim of designing distributed applications. He will also be able to design and implement real applications.

Autonomy of judgment: the student will be able to program a distributed application.

Communication skills: The student will be able to use the terminology of distributed systems appropriately. In addition, the student will be able to illustrate the descriptive characteristics and functionality of a system and distributed applications.

Learning skills: the student will learn the ability to design and implement systems based on descriptive requirements and specifications that specify the type of content and operations necessary for the management of a distributed application.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Frontal lessons and laboratory activities

Attendance

Not mandatory

Course books
  • Erlang Programming: A Concurrent Approach to Software Development. Francesco Cesarini & Simon Thompson
  • Programming Erlang: Software for a Concurrent World. Joe Armstrong

  •  An Introduction to Programming in Go. Caleb Doxsey

  • Designing for Scalability with Erlang/OTP Francesco Cesarini, Steve Vinoski

Assessment

The final exam will consists of two parts: the presentation of a scientific paper and a project. The presentation of the scientific paper will concur with 4 points to the final mark, while the discussion of the project will concur with 29 points.

The article should be agreed with the teacher, while the project should follow the specifications given by the teacher. The project is diveded into two pieces: the core part, which is the least requirement to pass the exam, and the advanced part.

Implementing the core part will concur with 24 points to the final mark, while implementing the advanced part will give 5 more points to the final mark.

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
