- Dana Petcu
- IEEE Distributed Systems Online
This contribution presents our experiences from developing an advanced course in grid computing, aimed at application and infrastructure developers. The course was intended for computer science students with extensive programming experience and previous knowledge of distributed systems, parallel computing, computer networking, and security. The presentation includes brief presentations of all topics covered in the course, a list of the literature used, and descriptions of the mandatory computer assignments performed using Globus Toolkit 2 and 3. A summary of our experiences from the course and some suggestions for future directions concludes the presentation.
