About Course

Operating systems (OS) serve as a vital link between a computer’s hardware and the programs that run on it.

It enables us to write programs without having to worry about hardware. It also guarantees that the computer’s resources, such as the CPU, hard drive, and memory, are used effectively. In this course, we’ll look at how the operating system accomplishes all of this while being efficient. This is an introductory course for students who have some computer organization experience.

The course is built on the xv6 operating system, which is similar to Linux in many aspects.
