TLEN 5490: Network Programming
Exposes students to UNIX/Linux systems and network programming with an emphasis on practical programming problems and experience. Covers the unique challenges of programming distributed systems including resolving synchronization, threads, pipes, sockets, and other constructs for building TCP/IP network servers and clients.
TCP Sockets (Internet and Unix domain)
UDP (Internet and Unix domain)
Client/Server applications design and implementation
Concurrent server implementation
Message Level multiplexing
Sockets in a GUI environment
Shared memory and semaphores
- Acquire thorough knowledge of the UNIX network programming API.
- Understand both C and Java.
- Understand sockets, shared memory, semaphores and pipes.
- Understand concurrent processing approaches.
Provide an in-depth focus on Interprocess Communications (IPC) and the software tools and techniques used to develop distributed
While there is no formal course prerequisite, students must have recent programming experience (C strongly recommended) in a UNIX development environment, including hands-on editing, compiling, and debugging.
If a proctor is indicated as “required” above, you will need
an appropriate person to proctor exams/quizzes for the course.
Examples of an appropriate person to proctor your exams/quizzes
are your supervisor/manager, an education/training or personnel
official in your company, or a librarian. The proctor may not be
a friend, relative, or co-worker. The proctor’s address must be
a business address. More detailed information about proctors is
available on our Exam/Quiz Proctor page.
For those able to come to campus, CAETE provides free proctoring services.
