Given that so much of software engineering is on web servers and clients, one of the most immediately valuable areas of computer science is computer networking.
Our course is scoped to provide the working web or infrastructure engineer with the networking fundamentals required to excel at their roles. It is structured around a simplified five layer version of the OSI seven layer model of computer networks.
Our self-taught students who methodically study networking find that they finally understand terms, concepts and protocols that they’d been surrounded by for years.
The practical component of this course involves a number of small exercises, such as parsing a packet capture file, writing a small load balancer and designing a reliable delivery protocol.
This course assumes confident programming ability in any language.
