Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

We will introduce the development of applications running directly on operating system and not using any extensions of CLR or Java environments. Students will learn how to use Android native development platform, Windows CE API, iOS and Linux API. After successful completion of the course the student should be able to: - Identify and describe layered model of the operating system. - Provide characteristics of most popular mobile operating systems. - Describe inner processes in OS with respect to the process life-cycle. - Develop applications running on specific operating systems without needs for CLR or additional libraries. - Modify existing software in order to increase effectiveness of resources allocation.

Summary

Writing applications in Java or C# is relatively easy, but there are special cases, where the generated code is not very efficient. The examples of most demanding applications are computationally intensive algorithms or peripheral and network communications. In order to achieve better results, we have to use C/C++ with the possibility to directly access the OS resources.
