ADIT 1345 Understanding Computing Devices (Fall: 4 )
Ubiquitous in today’s society and able to run multiple applications simultaneously, computing devices -- smart phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, servers -- become ever more sophisticated with each new product release. The volume of data produced and consumed by these devices and their applications will continue to grow exponentially. This course introduces and explores the fundamental concepts that form the foundation of how these devices operate, in terms of running applications and managing the data that makes those applications useful: the appointments in your calendar app; your list of Facebook friends; the deposits and withdrawals in your online bank account. Students will write a paper and make a brief presentation on a topic of interest from those covered during the semester.
