Operating System: Understanding the core

Learn how computers including your smartphone works, the tech behind.

Created by Ankush Choudhary - Cloud Engineer


Students: 1598, Price: Free

This course is for complete beginners. In this course, we are going to look at the concepts of Operating System from very basic to a level where we will have a deeper understanding of the intricacies and functionalities of OS.

In our daily lives, we interact with various smart devices like Smartphones, computers, ATMs, Car Music System. More and more devices are becoming digital by day and all these different devices have some or other sort of Operating system in them.

We interact with these devices every day and continuously. The curiosity of knowing "How they interact in the back-end?" must have brought you here.

What you will learn:

  • Become familiar with the core concepts of Operating Systems

  • Become familiar with different operating systems like Windows, Mac, Mobile, Open-Source.

  • How the Operating system has evolved into what it is today: History and Evolution of the Operating system.

  • How Operating Systems works

  • The Architecture Operating System Architecture?

  • How a process is created

  • How CPU scheduling happens in Operating Systems

  • Storage Devices and File System

  • View the Digital world in a different dimension

    This course describes all the challenges computer architects faced and are still facing in an attempt to make computers more power-efficient and high-performing than ever. And a look on future Technologies that are being developed and will shape the future.

Process Synchronization in Operating System

Mutex, Semaphore, Classical Synchronization Problems - Reader-Writer, Producer-Consumer, Dining Philosopher

This course is will cover Process Synchronization which is an important concept of Operating System. For concurrent execution of processes synchronization is necessary. For this purpose, processes may be accessing shared resources like memory. Critical section is the memory area where shared code is implemented. While accessing these resources data integrity is must. Mutex and semaphore are two important programming constructs implemented to solve the synchronization issues with critical section. For implementation of mutex and semaphore programming variables are just incremented and decremented to maintain count of processes currently accessing or will be accessing the shared area. Classical synchronization problems are well known problems to be solved with deadlock-free solution using semaphore and mutex. Producer-Consumer problem is producer processes are generating data and consumer processes are using that. But this must be implemented using mutex and semaphore locks. In reader-writer problem, reader and writer processes are accessing shared memory in synchronized manner. The dining philosopher problem is the issue of two resources sharing among processes in deadlock-free manner. This course will give knowledge of all these three problems along with implementation in C programming on Linux OS. This course will build up confidence for working on Linux as Operating System.

Operating System Algorithms

Process Scheduling algorithms

Students: 444, Price: Free

We will begin this course with a high level introduction to Operating Systems (OS). The Operating System acts as a platform of information exchange between your computer's hardware and the applications running on it. This course will introduce you to algorithms of operating systems. The course will begin with an overview of the structure of operating systems. Algorithms of Central Process Unit (CPU) scheduling deals with having more processes/threads than processors to handles those tasks, meaning how the CPU determines which jobs it is going to handle in what order. A good understanding of how a CPU scheduling algorithm works is essential to understanding how an Operating System works; a good algorithm will optimally allocate resources, allowing an efficient execution of all running programs. First discuss the CPU problem statement and the goals of a good scheduling algorithm. Then, we will move on to learning about types of CPU scheduling, such as pre-emptive and non-pre-emptive. Finally, we will conclude the module with a discussion on some of the more common algorithms found in UNIX-based Operating Systems.

File systems play an important role in the operating system. From the user's perspective, the file system is a simple filing cabinet. However, behind the scenes there is much complexity. We will discuss a general overview of process management , a look at processes and CPU scheduling algorithms.
