The ksys labs Summer School of System Programming (Summer Systems School'12) ========== From August 5 to August 6 our Summer School of System Programming had been functioning in Moscow. For more information please look [here](http://sss.ksyslabs.org/en/main) ------------------------------------ The ksys labs Summer School of System Programming (Summer Systems School'12) ========== From July 16 to August 10 our Summer School of System Programming had been functioning in Moscow. At our open-access Summer Systems School, those interested could attend lectures on OS architecture, information security, and cryptography, as well as participate in real OS development projects. Read more: ---------- Architecture of Operating Systems was the core course in our Summer Systems School, with the main focus on microkernel operating systems. Additional courses were comprised of lectures on the subject of Information Security. Although the admission was free, participants were expected to have a considerable understanding of the C programming language as well as advanced English so as to be able to listen to the lectures and read the documentation, since some of the lectures were given remotely by post-graduates of TU Dresden. The most successful students of the Summer School were offered internship in the company, and a few of them have been subsequently hired. Principal Lecturers: ------------ * Bjoern Doebel, PhD Student in Operating Systems at TU Dresden, Germany * Sartakov Vasily, ksys labs, Russia * Dr.-Ing. Norman Feske, Genode Labs, Germany ------------------------------------ About lecturers ========== Björn Döbel received his Diploma in Computer Science from the TU Dresden Operating Systems Group in 2006. Since then he has been working on various topics within the area of microkernel-based systems including device drivers, hardware fault tolerance, and communication security. He is currently working on his PhD titled 'Operating System Support for Redundant Multithreading'. Vasily A. Sartakov is the founder of "ksys labs" project, which is focused on research and development in the area of information security. He received his Diploma from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute in 2010. During his professional career he developed a multitude of hardware-software complexes employing embedded systems and digital signal processing methods. Norman Feske is one of the founders and architects of the Genode project. In 2008, he co-founded Genode Labs - a company with the mission to transform this OS technology from a once obscure research project to a next-generation mainstream OS. Prior to his work for Genode Labs, he was a research staff member at the OS Group of the University of Technology Dresden. He earned his PhD with his thesis on "Securing Graphical User Interfaces". ------------------------------------
